Supporting families during the pandemic
In late March, as the novel coronavirus pandemic began its crescendo, Family Connects International advised all Family Connects sites to begin delivering nurse home visits via telehealth and telephone. This was no small endeavor. New protocols and new ways of reaching-out to families with newborns had to be developed quickly, but a strong commitment to serving families with newborns informed all discussions and planning.
