October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month – Ohio AAP Projects Offer Ways to Make an Impact

In the more than 30 years since October was first designated as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, innovative programs have been developed to address many of the factors that can impact maternal and infant health. The Ohio AAP has approached this aspect of child health in the past through safe sleep, injury prevention, and child abuse prevention.

In the next few months, the Ohio AAP will offer new opportunities to address risks for infant mortality and maternal health that offer combinations of MOC Part IV, MOC Part II and CME credit – FREE for members. See details below on these programs and how to register today!
