The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion is host­ing an Oct. 30 webi­nar to explore how col­lec­tive impact strate­gies have been used to reduce infant mor­tal­i­ty and sup­port fam­i­ly well-being in Bal­ti­more, Cincin­nati and Cleveland.

The dis­cus­sion will focus on ways that pub­lic and pri­vate enti­ties are part­ner­ing to improve the care that moth­ers receive dur­ing preg­nan­cy and that babies receive after birth. It will also review how these part­ner­ships are sup­port­ing the long-term health of par­ents, the broad­er health of the sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ty and a range of per­sis­tent issues, includ­ing racism and poverty.

Reg­is­ter for the webinar

Par­tic­i­pants will learn about the pol­i­cy changes, ser­vice improve­ments, com­mu­ni­ty mobi­liza­tion efforts and behav­ior-change ini­tia­tives that the three cities have used to ensure that more babies make it to their first birth­days and thrive.

The webi­nar is part of the Foundation’s Com­mu­ni­ty Mat­ters series, which delves into the com­plex issues sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ty change and the lessons that Casey and oth­er orga­ni­za­tions have learned from their work in neigh­bor­hoods nationwide.
