Jacquie Watson is the Maternal and Child Health Director and Section Manager within the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare – Division of Public Health. She has over 14 years of experience as a public health professional and holds a Master of Health Science degree with an emphasis in health services leadership from Boise State University. Jacquie is committed to promoting and protecting the health and well-being of being of Idaho’s most precious resources—women, mothers, infants, children, and families.
