The Healthy Start EPIC Center provides free training and technical assistance (TA) to support Healthy Start grantees in achieving program goals to reduce infant mortality, reduce health disparities, and improve birth outcomes. Training and TA are mutually reinforcing capacity building activities. Training strives to build staff core competencies and organizational capacities to effectively provide Healthy Start services. TA provides for free, in-depth assistance in a focused area to an individual grantee or group of grantees, with an eye toward practical application of evidence-based practices targeting Healthy Start performance measures. Training and TA are offered through various modalities, including conferences, regional meetings, webinars, phone consultations, Communities of Practice, and Learning Collaboratives.

How do I access TA for my Healthy Start Program?


Please send an email to healthystartepic@jsi.com with your request. Once submitted, it will be sent to the EPIC Center TA Coordinator. You will receive an email confirmation that your TA request was successfully submitted and is under review.

What happens after I submit the TA request?


You will be contacted within two business days by email or phone to schedule a time to discuss your TA request in greater detail. A TA Provider will be identified to work closely with you until the TA is complete. You and your TA Provider will develop a TA Work Plan that will capture what you want to accomplish, by when and the activities that will achieve this goal.
