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.

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.
