Series Offered To Increase Infant Vitality

BrownBagSeries_infant_vitality.jpg

The local infant mortality rate is still unacceptably high, but more babies are surviving to their first birthday in Cincinnati than in previous years. The Cincinnati Health Department is working to continue that trend, sponsoring a series of discussions for would-be, expectant and young mothers, and fathers, about family planning, healthy moms and babies. 

  Here to tell us about the Infant Vitality Brown Bag Series are Dr. Noble Maseru, commissioner  of the Cincinnati Health Department; and, Dr. Jennifer Mooney, the Health Department’s Maternal and Infant Health Division director.  

For more information on local infant wellness programs and services, call First Steps Program: 513-564-2229 (BABY), or visit Every Child Succeeds, Cradle Cincinnati, Moving Beyond Depression™, or Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center.
