Sudden infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

SIDS is the sudden unexplained death of an infant under one year of age. A SIDS diagnosis requires a complete autopsy, a thorough death scene investigation, and review of the clinical history. The SIDS Program focuses on providing education about SIDS, grief counseling, and what can be done to reduce the risk of SIDS, like placing babies on their back to sleep.

“Honestly, without the program and Margarita, I don't think I would have ever found my own place.” - Brittiney
