Eliminating disparities in infant mortality: Success and lessons learned from select communities
Each of these teams have developed action, evaluation and sustainability plans to carry out selected strategies related to any aspect of addressing racism and infant mortality they deemed appropriate for their community or state. This session will present a summary of the efforts from select ALC teams from the Partnership to Eliminate Disparities in Infant Mortality. In addition this session will provide information on resources available that can assist others in doing similar work in their own communities. Specifically, this workshop will offer useful tools for action planning and program evaluation to address racial inequities that contribute to infant mortality.
