Addressing Extreme Prematurity
Eliminating Sleep-Related Deaths
Whether you are a clinician or provider, researcher, funder, or part of a governmental agency, nonprofit or other type of interested organization, we welcome your ideas and participation in this community movement.
Explore First Year Cleveland’s programs and learn what our twelve action teams are doing to create solutions around our three priority areas of reducing racial disparities, addressing extreme prematurity and eliminating sleep-related deaths.
The Cuyahoga County Board of Health issues a monthly Infant Mortality and Birth Outcome report which includes data that informs the work of First Year Cleveland. A comprehensive annual Child Fatality Report is also issued in the fall of each year which provides a broad look at causes of death of children less than 18 years old who lived in Cuyahoga County.
If you or your organization would like to become involved with First Year Cleveland, please contact us or learn about the many ways you can help be a part of the solution to save our babies.
First Year Cleveland is a community collaboration of expectant parents, parents, community leaders, philanthropic organizations, government entities, health providers, educational institutions, nonprofits, faith-based and business entities. Learn more in our Strategic Plan.
Together, we can continue our urgent mission to help every baby in the Greater Cleveland area celebrate a first birthday, and thrive.
