********************For Immediate Release********************

Date: September 20th, 2011
Time: 11:00 am
Location: Abilene/Taylor County Law Enforcement Center

The Taylor County Child Fatality Review Team will hold a joint press conference with Hendrick Medical Center and Abilene Regional Medical Center at the above listed date and time. The purpose of this press conference will be to raise awareness of the link between SIDS deaths of children and a safe sleep environment. Forty percent of SIDS deaths in 2009 were attributed to an unsafe sleep position of the infant.

In order to assist in educating new parents on the safest sleep position for their new infants, the Taylor County CFRT will be donating onesies to both hospitals for distribution to new parents. The onesies have the words “This Side Up” written on the front in an attempt to remind parents of the safe sleep position for their infants. The onesies were made available by the Texas Department of State Health Services. I am attaching a document with some facts about SIDS deaths, risk factors, and safe sleep environments.

Please join us for this event.
