The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2018 national survey of Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) has launched

Screening calls are made on a rolling basis by Battelle Health and Analytics, on behalf of the CDC. As of last week, 97% of birthing hospitals had received a screening call asking to speak to the mother/baby manager. Please be on the lookout for this call or voicemail as the CDC needs to update contacts at each hospital. The 2018 mPINC survey will be conducted online only so they need to confirm current emails of hospital leadership in order to send the survey link.

We encourage all our Oklahoma hospitals to respond to this important national survey which is only conducted every 2 years. To learn more about the mPINC survey, visit the website:

If you have not been contacted or have any questions about the administration of the survey, please contact the CDC contractor: Battelle Health and Analytics at 1-866-826-4176.
