The Healthy From Birth for Life Program is officially on the map!
November 1, 2011
Below is an email from Cynthia Smith, Director of the Women & Infant Vitality Network Office on Maternal & Infant Health and Infant Mortality Reduction in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Dear Healthy From Birth for Life Program,
My office was created to reduce infant mortality in Cincinnati / Hamilton County Ohio. It is a collaborative, community wide effort that includes multiple organizations. One of our areas of focus is preconception health and community engagement.
Your Healthy From Birth for Life Program seems to be an excellent way to get youth involved in improving birth outcomes. I would like to use the model, with some modifications for Cincinnati, in a community where we have a high number of preterm and low birth weight births, as well as a high number of infant deaths. I would like to talk with you about your challenges and successes if possible.
Please contact me at your convenience.
Thank you for your consideration,
Cynthia Smith – Director
Women & Infant Vitality Network Office on Maternal & Infant Health and
Infant Mortality Reduction (OMIHIMR)
