Collaborative Partnership

 

Health Disparity:  Infant Mortality 

Black babies in Illinois and Chicago are often born too early and too small due to stresses in life and can lead to infant mortality. The love and connection that we share with others people can lessen the impact of the stress caused by social injustice, lack of access to good healthcare services and unhealthy personal relationships.


Join the conversation at our next bi-weekly partnership meeting hosted by Greater Auburn Gresham Development Corporation located 1159 W. 79th Street from 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm.
