Ohio Collaborative to Prevent Infant Mortality (OCPIM) Quarterly Meeting -- Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019 from 10am to 1pm at the Cleveland Public Auditorium, Cleveland, Ohio

Oct 01, 2019


From Toledo to Cleveland, we are preparing for the next face-to-face Ohio Collaborative to Prevent Infant Mortality (OCPIM) Quarterly Meeting, Thursday, November 7, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Cleveland Public Auditorium, 500 Lakeside Ave, Cleveland, Ohio 44114. Meeting room and parking details will be sent to members and registrants via email. Please register for the OCPIM Quarterly Meeting at

This meeting will include updates on Ohio infant mortality rates and reduction programs, the Ohio House Bill 11, and federal initiatives, and discussions around the latest hot topics. Directly after the meeting, box lunches will be served, along with the showing of a special movie premier: “Toxic: A Black Woman’s Story,” exploring racism, toxic stress, and birth outcomes.

The next day, as many of you may already know, the YWCA Greater Cleveland and First Year Cleveland (FYC) will be hosting a two-day summit, 400 Years of Inequity: A Call to Action, November 8-9, from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Cleveland Public Auditorium. The Summit is dedicated to addressing the cumulative disparate impact of how America has managed race and what the overall impact race has on today’s disparities. The event is designed to demonstrate how the inequities in social conditions forced upon slaves and their descendants provide the primary explanation for the racial disparities experienced today and provide an opportunity to come together to address how equity may finally be achieved for all Americans.

Conference planners have graciously offered a discount to OCPIM membership and it is their hope you may consider staying over and attending the summit. Once your OCPIM Quarterly Meeting registration is completed, you will receive an email directing you on how to register and receive the OCPIM discount for the 400 Years of Inequity: A Call to Action Summit.

Again, Dr. Greenberg and I would like to thank you for commitment and support.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
