We are pleased to announce an encore session of Public Health
Grand Rounds, entitled “Public Health Approaches to Reduce
U.S. Infant Mortality,” which will be rebroadcasted on Tuesday,
July 15, at 1 p.m. (EDT). Please note that this session will only
be available via webcast at http://www.cdc.gov/
This session of Grand Rounds explored public health approaches to
reducing U.S. infant mortality. This session also coincided with the
20th anniversary of Child Health Month inaugurated by the American
Academy of Pediatrics. Both nationally and globally, infant mortality
is a key measure of population health. The infant mortality rate, the
rate at which babies less than one year of age die, has continued to
steadily decline in the US over the past several decades; data from
2010 shows 6.15 deaths per 1,000 live births. Despite overall progress,
racial disparities in infant mortality persist and preventable infant
deaths continue to occur. Public health agencies including CDC/ATSDR,
health care providers, and communities of all ethnic groups must
partner to further reduce the infant mortality rate in the United States.
This joint approach should address the social, behavioral, and health
risk factors that affect birth outcomes.
Please join us for this powerful session of Grand Rounds in which we
will highlight accomplishments and explore public health, clinical, and
policy strategies to improve birth outcomes, with special consideration
of high risk individuals, families, and communities.
We also invite you to view the new “Beyond the Data” segment
featuring Dr. John Iskander and Dr. Wanda Barfield as they discuss
some important updates since this session originally aired.
