Both refugee mothers and children in New Haven, CT participated in Blossom Hill Fellow Fereshteh Ganjavi’s second Maternal and Pediatric Health Session this fall semester. This initiative aims to bring mothers and their children together to educate families on the importance of child safety, positive parenting, nutrition, prenatal education, and other topics.

This program is a direct collaboration with a team of healthcare providers from Yale Health Education and Literacy for Asylees and Refugees, Demand for this program is at an all-time high as mothers seek to learn while their children socialize in a safe, culturally-competent environment. We loved seeing the children, mothers, and volunteers playing games and activities designed to foster positive attitudes toward healthy lifestyles.
