Caring Today with Hope for Tomorrow: National SIDS Conference

The CJ Foundation for SIDS, Inc. and The CMI Education Institute, Inc.
2nd Annual Conference
September 27-30, 2007
St. Louis, MO

Bringing Bereaved Families, Research, and Health care Professionals Together

Conference Summary:
The Caring Connection: Caring Today with Hope for Tomorrow, is a National Conference dedicated to bringing together professionals and families to address Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) and Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID).

Conference goals are to create and conduct an educational program that will 1) provide knowledge and skills to health care professionals and educators to support families and infuse risk reduction methods into their practice; 2) provide comfort and hope to bereaved families; and 3) establish/unite the SIDS and SUDC communities. This will be accomplished by creating a venue focusing upon current and “best practice models” encompassing public health initiatives, research activities and bereavement needs/services.

Plenary sessions, workshop presentations, panel discussions and other program activities will enable those in attendance to gain the tools, skills and resources necessary to educate, advocate and heal.

The Sibling Program and Childcare for children under the age of five is provided for a fee. For more information: http://www.cjsids.com/art/conference%20brochure.pdf
