    Join us on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. ET to learn about progress made toward achieving the Healthy People 2020 Maternal, Infant, and Child Leading Health Indicators. This webinar will highlight national and state efforts to reduce infant deaths and preterm births. You’ll also learn how the Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Georgia’s Prenatal Education Program is working to help pregnant women and their families get the information and resources they need to have healthy birth and postpartum outcomes.  

    The well-being of mothers, infants, and children determines the health of the next generation and can help predict future public health challenges for families, communities, and the health care system. Many factors can affect pregnancy and childbirth outcomes, including preconception health status, age, income, and access to health care before, during, and between pregnancies. Healthy birth outcomes and early detection and treatment of health conditions among infants can prevent death or disabilityenabling children to reach their full potential.
