Perinatal Outreach EducationEducation, both for pregnant women and for perinatal providers, is essential if we are to improve birth outcomes in West Virginia. Only through the collaboration of many organizations, agencies, and individuals working in partnership can we address the many issues identified by those working with pregnant women and their newborns.

The West Virginia Partnership is dedicated to providing a wide variety of educational seminars and conferences, in addition to hosting the annual West Virginia Perinatal Summit. For upcoming events that have been scheduled, please check the calendar.
