This forum will spotlight experts on trends and contributing factors, and stimulate strategies to reduce infant mortality in the Kansas City region.   Participants will be introduced to The Infant Mortality Dashboard—a user-friendly tool capturing Kansas City area data—AND participate in the development of an action agenda to improve perinatal and infant outcomes.
