September is National Infant Mortality Awareness Month

By September 17, 2012

Follow me on:

September is National Infant Mortality Awareness Month, sponsored in partnership by a host of organizations, including:

  • Office of Minority Health
  • National Health Start Association
  • March of Dimes
  • Baltimore City Healthy Start
  • National Institute of Child Health and Human Development
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Administration for Children and Families
  • Indian Health Service
  • Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs
  • National Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Coalition

This year's theme is "A Healthy Baby Begins With You and You and You."

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved, from sharing a story about how you're working to prevent infant mortality at National Healthy Start Association's website.  There, you can also enter to win a one-year of baby supplies from Johnson & Johnson just for signing up for Text4Baby.
