Illuminate Colorado is seeking a Family Connects Medical Director to lead the State Intermediary functions related to medical and clinical leadership in partnership with the demonstration and local communities in Colorado.
Family Connects is an evidence-based approach to supporting all newborns and their families. As a universal home visitation model, Family Connects implementation is designed to create mechanisms, building on local community capacity and interests, that will provide all new parents, prenatally or at birth, systematic opportunities to discuss and learn about their concerns and be connected to the parent support resources available in their communities. The home visits are performed by registered nurses and include both an infant and maternal physical assessment, with the infant assessment being more comprehensive. As the state intermediary, Illuminate Colorado is partnering with Family Connects International to work with communities to plan for the model’s implementation and sustainability across Colorado.
