Healthcare & Women's Rights Committees Sponsor Best Babies Zone Event -- CANCELED


Healthcare and Women's Rights Committees Sponsor Best Babies Zone Initiative



Were you aware that African American babies in Wake County are four times more likely than white babies to die within their first year of life? And were you aware that those rates are even higher in Southeast Raleigh?

Better Babies ZoneTo address these inequities, Wake County launched a Best Babies Zone (BBZ) Initiative. The approach of the BBZ is a place-based, multi-sector, community-driven effort to reduce racial inequities in infant mortality and birth outcomes. It mobilizes community residents and organizational partners to address the social, structural, and economic determinants of health and to promote health equity.
 
The League of Women Voters of Wake County is a partner with Wake County to help promote the BBZ initiative and help to reduce the rate of infant mortality and racial inequities.

Please join us on October 26, 2021, from 3:00-4:00 pm, to hear from the co-directors of Wake County’s BBZ Initiative: Dauline Singletary, Public Health Educator, Wake County Government, Maternal and Child Health /Public Health; and Jahaziel Zavaleta, CMARC Care Manager. This virtual event is co-sponsored by the LWV-Wake Healthcare and Women’s Rights Committees.
