Awareness and education are key to reducing and eventually eliminating SIDS and accidental infant deaths. By raising awareness of the problem and educating parents and families as well as caregivers on risk prevention techniques, the incidence of SIDS deaths can be significantly reduced.
SIDS of Illlinois is committed to educating professionals, healthcare providers, and infant caregivers on how to reduce the risk of SIDS and other infant deaths. The not-for-profit organization achieves this goal through a wide variety of professional partnerships and community outreach programs. Some of the programs are offered in English, and others are in Spanish. Please feel free to browse through the list of educational services.
The NPO also distributes an Education and Research Update email via Constant Contact to help keep other professionals informed of the latest developments in the quest to eliminate infant mortality in Illinois.
