Our last conference addressed the need to further reduce infant mortality rates locally and nationally by targeting and utilizing existing program resources; creating partnerships through community leadership collaborations, and providing organizations with the tools needed for a unified infant safe sleep effort.

For the 2019 conference, our goal is to start a conversation about how we can actively reach larger audiences and spread the safe sleep message more effectively using technology, social media, and marketing. We want to embrace technology and use the tools that are available to us today so that we can make infant safe sleep practices the social norm and promote the health, safety, and well-being of all infants.

This conference is the only infant safe sleep event that brings proponents of reform in the way infant deaths are investigated under one roof. It will bring Cribs for Kids® Partners from across the country to meet and compare best practices and at the same time give prospective partners an opportunity to learn about ways to begin a Cribs for Kids® Program in their communities.

Professionals, from throughout the country , will begin a national dialogue that will address the importance of education for parents and caregivers regarding infant safe sleep practices and the need for accurate and consistent classification and coding of sudden unexplained infant deaths.

We invite you to join a national dialogue that will address the importance of a safe sleep environment for infants and the need for accurate and consistent classification and coding of sudden unexplained infant deaths. This groundbreaking conference is the first of its kind to bring experts, from both of these arenas, under one roof.
