Maternal Child Health Initiatives

Family Youth and Infant Health coordinates programs and initiatives that focus on the health of children, infants and improving birth outcomes.  The goals of these programs are to make Nashville the healthiest city for children, while also reducing our infant mortality rates and eliminating perinatal health disparities.  The infant mortality initiatives include Project Blossom, a community coalition around infant health, as well as a Fetal Infant Mortality Review program, aimed to better understand factors that affect birth outcomes.
