The month of September has been declared National Infant Mortality Awareness Month. The purpose of this month is to highlight the unfortunate occurrences of infant deaths across the nation and to raise awareness about programs that help to save infant lives and ensure that children have a healthy start.
In order to assist with awareness of the occurrences of infant deaths across Hamilton and surrounding counties, the Blues Project of Chattanooga will host an Annual Baby Shower and Community Health Fair event. Lunch will be provided along with entertainment for the family and door prizes will be given away. Vendors will also be available to assist with healthcare needs.
The event will take place on Sept. 18 at the Brainerd Youth and Family Development Center, at 1010 N. Moore Lane, from 10 a.m. -4 p.m.
