FREE Smart Start! Safe Sleep for Infants by First 5 Institute

  • First 5 Shasta Conference Room (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Each year about 3,500 babies in the United States die suddenly and unexpectedly before they reach their first birthday due to sleep-related deaths. These tragedies, called sudden unexpected infant death (SUID), often occur during sleep or in the baby's sleep area, and include sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), accidental suffocation and strangulation in bed, and other deaths from unknown causes.

In the 1990's, a dramatic reduction in sleep-related infant deaths followed the release of recommendations and campaigns including Back-to-Sleep. However, rates of SUIDs have remained relatively flat since 2001 and racial and ethnic disparities persist. Differences in how the causes of these deaths are reported limit our understanding and prevention efforts.

Join us at this First 5 Institute Smart Start for this session of Public Health Grand Rounds as experts in the field discuss infant safe sleep recommendations, the need for standardized SUID investigation and reporting practices, and promising interventions.

Professionals and Providers serving young children and their families - wake up to a Smart Start! The 0-to-5 Smart Start features learning opportunities to support and expand knowledge base to increase capacity of those providing services to young children and their families. A light breakfast is provided - come learn, have breakfast and network! 30 spots are available for each 0-to-5 Smart Start. Register early to hold a spot.

FREE Culture of Poverty Training by First 5 Institute

Join us in a discussion about the culture of poverty. Using the work of Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D., we will explore some of the ideas presented in her book, A Framework for Understanding Poverty. Presenter Susan Wilson will focus on some of the significant ideas presented in Payne's theories including:

  • Poverty is relative

  • Poverty occurs in all races and in all countries

  • Economic class is a continuous line, not a clear-cut distinction

  • Generational poverty and situational poverty are different

  • An individual brings with him/her the hidden rules of the class in which he/she was raised

  • Two things that help one move out of poverty are education and relationships

  • How a two-generation approach to assist parents with taking action builds strength and resiliency

  • Four reasons one leaves poverty are: it is too painful to stay; a vision or a goal; a key relationship; or a special talent

Who Should Attend

  • Providers of services to children 0-to-5, parents or primary caregivers of children 0-to-5, or pregnant women

Includes

  • Lunch & snacks

This free training is open to Shasta County parents, pregnant women, and providers serving young children, ages 0-to-5, and their families.
