New River Health MIHOW

About Us

Maternal Infant Health Outreach Workers Program is a parent-to-parent intervention that targets families from pregnancy through the child’s third year of life. The program employs and trains parents to serve families in their own communities to encourage and support healthy lifestyles, positive parenting practices, and to help families understand and promote healthy child development. The oldest continually operating In-Home Family Education model in West Virginia is at New River Health, where MIHOW started in 1978.
