About Us


Infant deaths are a community-wide problem influenced by a variety of social, economic, and medical issues. The Forsyth County Infant Mortality Reduction Coalition works to bring resources together, provide direction to citizen action and education efforts, and move our community towards the changes that will allow us to save babies' lives.


All babies born in Forsyth County will be healthy and thrive.


Reduce infant mortality by educating the community about how to prevent infant death and advocating for systems and policy changes that support healthy birth outcomes.
