Over 3,500 infants die annually in the United States from sleep-related deaths, including sudden infant death syndrome. The issue disproportionately impacts families of color, especially black, American Indian/Alaskan Native, and low-income families. With that in mind, October is Safe Sleep and SIDS Awareness Month and DECAL is joining Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to remind caregivers and parents.
Joining us to talk about Safe Sleep and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is Pam Stevens, Deputy Commissioner for Child Care Services here at DECAL; Candace Gilbert is Quality Improvement and Training Coordinator with Child Care Services; Malissa Champion is a CCS Consultant serving Northeast Georgia; Rachel Brown is a CCS Consultant in the Northwest Region, and Michelle Walker is a pediatric nurse serving as Manager of Child Advocacy Programs with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
We are also joined by Sabrina Henry from DECAL's HR Division with an update on 2021 Open Enrollment. Support the show
