CityMatCH is a national organization of urban maternal and child health programs and leaders. In 1995, CityMatCH sponsored a conference at which urban maternal and child health leaders from city and county health departments across the country came together for professional development and networking. This report of highlights from the conference presents summaries of the following papers as selected remarks from the conference: (1) "Opening Remarks" (Peter Morris); (2) "The Essential Ingredients of a Successful Community Partnership" (David Satcher); (3) "Re-Inventing Public Health" (Hugh F. Stallworth); (4) "Protect Children, not Guns: What Are the Next Steps?" (Katherine Kaufer Christoffel); (5) "Total Quality Management Workshop Summary" (Irene Bindrich); and (6) "Closing Remarks" (Carolyn Slack). These summaries are followed by an index of cities profiled in 1995 (in chart form). The bulk of the report consists of 70 program descriptions, which include information about objectives, accomplishments, funding, community partners, and program evaluation. A list of program participants is attached. (SLD)
