Infant mortality is a critical indicator for the health of a society. Through different research protocols from state Departments of Health and Human Services, we’ve found that social determinants of health are more critical to thriving infants than strictly medical approaches. We believe in the whole person, whatever their age. Environmental issues, addressing survived trauma, self-cultural awareness, access to healthy food and uncontaminated water, perinatal coaching, and safe sleep are essential elements of the lives of babies that survive their first year.
We’ve partnered with an early learning center, Crane R&D, and prominent researchers in cultural psychology to create a special intervention to improve birth outcomes and ultimately reduce cases of infant mortality. Stay tuned for our updates on the NEO Project™.
