Fort Worth has the second highest infant mortality rate in Texas.  Four ZIP codes in Fort Worth are among the top 25 worst ZIP codes in the U.S. for infant mortality.  African American infant mortality rates in Fort Worth are more than twice that of Tarrant County overall. 

This workshop will bring together community members, health practitioners and public health workers to address the critical need to improve the health of our babies.

Register at  http://www.registerwithunt.com/.   A $10 fee will be charged for attendees who want continuing education credit.
