Annual Conference Held in Wheeling, WV (March 2012)

The Ohio County MIHOW Program was pleased be the host program and welcome the participants of the Annual MIHOW Conference.  The conference was held March 28-30, 2012 at the Oglebay Resort and Conference Center, Wheeling, WV.  Conference participants came from each of the four states representing the MIHOW community (Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi and West Virginia).  This years’ conference theme was “Family Matters: Supporting Every Person, Every Unique Role”.  Trainings focused on the involvement of fathers in the MIHOW Program, as well as engaging and understanding teens and the special issues they face as parents. Our keynote speaker, Jim Harris, presented on “The 5 Things You Need to Know About Kids”, which gave a new perspective on parenting, intervention and why some methods of intervention work better than others.

Many thanks to Tonya Elkins, MIHOW Director, Vanderbilt University Center for Community Health Solutions and Chrystal Fizer, Administrative Assistant,  for their hard work and dedication coordinating another wonderful conference!
