Developing a State-wide Safe Sleep Strategy

The Baby Safe Sleep Coalition was honored to participate in a safe sleep strategy session held March 5, 2015 at the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. Several different organizations that work with children and families shared what they are currently doing to educate the community. The meeting was the first step in working together to create a unified safe sleep awareness strategy for New York State.  We were inspired to hear about the advances other agencies have made in educating parents and caregivers about the importance of safe sleep practices in eliminating the deaths of healthy infants. We look forward to continuing to work with this group!
