Summit County Public Health is a proud partner of Full Term First Birthday (FTFB).
FTFB was established to address the unacceptably high rate of infant mortality in Summit County and significant disparity in birth outcomes between White and Black infants. FTFB is a data-driven initiative that relies on evidence-based best practices, field research and, most importantly, the voices of families. Together, with a collective of other local agencies, FTFB works to address issues like the interplay between race, equity, and social determinants of health to infant mortality and preterm birth.
