We have been fortunate to work with Denver Public Health and their partners the past 7 months to educate the community on African American infant mortality in Denver. Multiple organizations from many sectors work collectively and tirelessly to address this meaningful topic.

- An African-American woman in Denver is three times more likely to lose her baby to miscarriage or death in the first year of life compared to a non-Hispanic white woman.
- High-socioeconomic status African American women experience worse birth outcomes than low-socioeconomic status non-Hispanic white women.

From business owners to healthcare providers and everyone in between, we all have a role in supporting healthy child development. Learn about action steps you can take to reduce African American infant mortality rates in Denver by attending the following upcoming summit:
