Write for the MCH Blog!

Blog entries should be about 2-5 paragraphs in length (and no more than 500 words)

  • They should include a title and the names of authors
  • You may embed links into the text of relevant websites, PDF documents, videos, etc.
  • You don’t have to include a picture, but it is recommended


Blogs are usually informal and written in a conversational style.  If you make claims or refer to research, provide appropriate citations in APA style.


Please contact Cindy San Miguel, Program Coordinator, with blog entries or ideas at csanmig2@uic.edu. She will review any entries to ensure that they meet all the guidelines.


Ideas for possible blog entry topics include:

  • Interviewing or telling the story of someone doing amazing work in MCH
  • Current MCH students: Write about your experience related to a conference you attended, your Integrative Learning Experience, your volunteer work, a site visit for a MCH class, or your practicum. Tell your story – why did you choose to work in MCH? What kind of work do you want to do in the future?
  • Write an entry about the research project you are working on
  • Write about a current MCH issue that you are passionate about
