Title of Collaborative Activity:

Fatherhood Outreach: Implications of Men's Health and Community Engagement in Pregnancy Outcomes

Description of Collaborative Activity:

In 2013, NICHD, in collaboration with the Administration for Children and Families, the Maternal & Child Health Bureau of the Health Resources and Services Administration, and the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research held a workshop entitled, “Paternal Involvement in Pregnancy Outcomes to identify research gaps in topics related to fathers’ role in pregnancy outcomes”. This is a follow-up meeting that will focused on community engagement with fathers to support healthy pregnancy outcomes. The objectives of this 2-day workshop were to: •Increase awareness of the role of men’s health in pregnancy outcomes •Identify potential collaborations between researchers and community organizations and innovative strategies for engaging fathers in research to support healthy pregnancy outcomes. This workshop included presentations from both academic researchers and community organization representatives with interests in engaging fathers in research to promote healthy pregnancy outcomes.
