Healthy Baby Network recognizes that health is not just related to medical care but also to social determinants. We strive to collaborate and partner across sectors to align work in order to more efficiently and effectively address the health and well-being of mothers and babies across the life cycle. Healthy Baby Network hosts Networking Sessions, participates on many coalitions, and maintains an active Community Action Network. Every September, during Infant Mortality Awareness Month, Healthy Baby Network hosts our onesie awareness campaign, a commemorative event for providers and families, and an annual conference.
