U.S. Infant Mortality Rates

Did you know...
The US has infant mortality rates higher than 27 other developed nations. There is much work to be done. To find out how you can support the important effort to prevent infant deaths, visit www.firstcandle.org, or call 800-221-7437, or email: info@firstcandle.org

This info comes from FirstCandle.org:
"As the nation’s leading organization dedicated to infant health and survival, First Candle is working to ensure that every baby is provided the best possible chance to celebrate not only their first birthday, but many happy birthday’s beyond. According to Dr. Marian Sokol, president of First Candle, the Caucus is critical to the organization’s mission. “If we are to reach our goal of a future where all babies survive and thrive, we must enlist the help of all those interested in the health and well-being of our nation’s most precious commodity . . . our children, our future,” said Sokol."
