Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Georgia, along with Heart of Georgia Healthy Start, Enterprise Community Healthy Start, Atlanta Healthy Start Initiative, Clayton County Healthy Start and March of Dimes Georgia, invites you to join us for a day of awareness raising and advocacy on February 21, 2018.

We will be displaying approximately 900 infant onesies to raise awareness around Georgia’s very poor infant mortality ranking and speaking with legislators regarding policies and budget priorities that will move the needle on maternal and infant health in Georgia. We had 962 infant deaths in Georgia during 2016.
