Region V Infant Mortality Webinar Series

MCHB and CityMatCH are hosting a webinar series for HHS Region V state and local MCH professionals and their partners who are dedicated to eliminating racial inequities specific to infant mortality in the region. The webinars are meant to supplement the work happening in each state as they drive towards reducing infant mortality and eliminating racial disparities.

Although the original author is hotly debated, we have all heard the quote, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Keeping this in mind, participating states were asked to strategically consider who to invite to this learning series and who can help them as they work towards reducing infant mortality and eliminating racial disparities. States should also apply the content to their work and look forward to sharing the practical applications of the content during quarterly peer calls with other Region V states. 

This site will serve as the repository for the monthly webinars where attendees will be able to view recordings and access any relevant documents. Check back regularly for updates!
