Infant Mortality Coalition

The Infant Mortality Coalition (IMC) attempts to address infant health disparities and ultimately reduce inequities in infant mortality in Ingham County. The overarching goal of the initiative is to keep mothers and infants alive and well before, during and after birth. The IMC currently serves as the advisory group to Nurse Family Partnership Home Visiting Program, Strong Start Healthy Start, and Family Outreach Services – all home visiting programs whose aim is to reduce infant mortality. The IMC also collaborates with the Ingham County Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) to discuss data elements related to fetal and infant loss, best practices to decrease disparities, and identify resources available for women, infants and families.

The IMC meets on the 4th Thursday of every month from 1:30 – 3:30pm at the Ingham County Health Department, 5303 S. Cedar Street, Lansing, MI 48909.
