The Health Diary was planned and developed by a work group of the Maternal and Child Health Bureau that brought a broad range of professional training and experience to the task. Members of the work group are: Stephanie Dort Bryn, MPH; Susan Givens, RN, MPH; Nancy Haliburton, RN, MSN; David Heppel, MD; Vince L. Hutchins, MD, MPH; Kenneth Keppel, PhD; Woodie Kessel, MD, MPH; Laura Kruse, MPH; Geraldine Norris, RN, MSN; Julia Plotnick, RNC, MPH; Barbara Tausey, MD; George Walter, MPH; and Ina Heyman, editor.

The text was written by Elaine Bratic Arkin. The book was designed by Laurel A. Vaughan, with illustrations by Martha Vaughan and Michael Felish. Desktop publishing was done by Cynthia Yockey and production coordinator was Kathy Holman.
