On Thursday afternoon, March 28, from 2:00-5:00 p.m., anyone from the general public is welcome to stop into the main entrance of Veterans Memorial Hospital for information on how to decrease the risk Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).  

Patty Keeley, the Executive Director of the Iowa SIDS Foundation, will be on site to share information on safe sleep for infants, current safe sleep recommendations and share resources about the Iowa SIDS Foundation.   This is an informal opportunity to ask questions about safe sleep for infants as well.

This open house is available for anyone in the community—those expecting their first child, anyone with young children, any grandparents, anyone who cares for young children or anyone who is just interested in learning the newest facts on safe sleep for infants. 

For additional information, please call Cheryl Livingston, Paramedic, at Veterans Memorial Hospital at 568-3411.
