Event description

Description

World Prematurity Day is observed on 17 November each year to raise awareness of preterm birth and the concerns of preterm babies and their families. In Fresno, we will engage, inform, and increase awareness about the adverse impact of this issue in our community. We are working with partners like Black Infant Health, City of Fresno, EOC Street Saints, Fresno County Dept. of Public Health, Fresno Barrios Unidos, parents who have had preterm babies, and Fresno City Police Department to reach our entire community.

In the Central Valley, preterm birth is one of the most dramatic and shocking examples of race and place inequality in this country. We are learning from our families who face interpersonal and structural barriers to access services and the care and support needed to have healthy babies and strong families. We envision all women in Fresno County are in the best health before, during, and after pregnancy so that more babies are born healthy. Everyone in the community, including government, businesses, schools, universities, community colleges, churches, nonprofit organizations, healthcare providers, and you, have an important role in supporting the health of women and babies.
