Hosted by National Institute for Children’s Health Quality (NICHQ)
Date: August 23, 2023
Time: 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Pacific
In the U.S., significant racial/ethnic and geographic disparities exist among sudden unexpected infant deaths (SUID) and breastfeeding practices. Combining infant safe sleep (ISS) and breastfeeding promotion on the community level presents opportunities to address these racial/ethnic disparities and associated socioeconomic, cultural, and psychosocial influences.
In Spring 2021, the National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep Improvement and Innovation Network (NAPPSS-IIN) hosted a series of Listening Sessions to address two research questions: (1) What are the areas that community-level organizations need support to serve their population’s needs around safe sleep and breastfeeding; (2) What tools or resources could assist them in improving their work promoting safe sleep and breastfeeding? This webinar will share thematic findings and implications for safe sleep and breastfeeding policies and education.
