Dimperio D. n.d.. Interconceptional Support of Women at High Risk for Low Birthweight [Final report]. Gainesville, FL: North Central Florida Maternal and Infant Care Project, 36 pp.

Annotation: The goal of this project was to reduce the incidence of low birthweight by improving the preconceptional health of women who were at high risk for delivering a low birthweight infant. High-risk women were identified at delivery and were followed for 2 years. Client services were then provided by community health workers, who made home visits and developed a risk reduction plan for each client. Intervention protocols were developed for each risk factor and involved referral to the appropriate resource, followup to ensure client compliance, and reinforcement of professional counseling or supplemental teaching.

Annotation: This goal of this project was to develop a model referral network and regionalized health care delivery system for children at high risk for hearing, speech, and language disorders resulting from otologic diseases. Project objectives were to: (1) Develop staff in the tri-State area of Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee and create and maintain a tri-State referral network; (2) identify contributing factors which inhibit health care delivery to infants and children with otologic problems who live among rural, remote, economically disadvantaged, and culturally diverse population groups; (3) remove barriers to care for infants and children with otologic health care problems; and (4) identify infants and children with hearing disorders living among rural and remote, economically disadvantaged, and culturally diverse population groups.
