SIDS Awareness Month Comes to a Close & Native American Heritage Month Begins
As Safe Sleep and SIDS Awareness Month comes to a close this week, USBC is proud to be a partner in the NIH Safe to Sleep Campaign. The campaign works to inform parents, caregivers, healthcare and childcare providers, and others about ways to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep-related infant deaths, including through human milk feeding.
November is Native American Heritage Month (NAHM), a time to honor the rich diversity of American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian cultures, traditions, and languages, and recognize the histories and continuing invaluable contributions of its people. By providing a platform for American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian health organizations to discuss challenges and opportunities, we can all help move communities toward health equity and reduce disparities in breastfeeding rates. To help us amplify your resources in celebration of NAHM, please submit relevant materials that can be shared on the USBC website and social media channels.
