Racine Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families
The Community 1st Birthday Party took place on September 29th to commemorate Nation Infant Mortality Awareness Month. Thanks to our community partners, the Surviving Dyamonds and the George Bray Neighborhood Center, over 70 individuals had the chance to meet Elmo and learn about why the event was important. The Project Manager will post pictures and video from the event soon.
