Safe Sleep Presentations Available for OB Practices
The Baby Safe Sleep Coalition offers free safe sleep educational presentations to OB and pediatric practices in the Monroe County area. The presentations include a short PowerPoint presentation that familiarizes health professionals with current local statistics on unsafe sleep deaths and the latest AAP recommendations on safe sleep practices, and provides helpful answers to questions parents and caregivers have about safe sleep practices. There is also a short video that includes comments from the Monroe County Medical Examiner and Public Health Director, and the stories of two local families who lost their infants due to unsafe sleep practices. Free educational materials are also available for distribution to patients. For more information, send us an email or call (585) 473-SAFE.
Please note that at this time, the Coalition is able to provide presentations and materials ONLY or practices and organizations located in Monroe County, NY. All materials are available as PDFs on our website.
