New Campaign Raises Awareness of Preventable Child Deaths

Across Tampa Bay, 41 children under age 6 died last year from three causes that are 100 percent preventable:  drowning, abusive head trauma (also known as “Shaken Baby Syndrome”) and unsafe sleep practices (co-sleeping).
• One preventable death is one too many. Take just five minutes to visit to learn how you can keep our children safe and share this lifesaving information with your family and friends.
• These tragedies can happen to anyone, and it’s going to take all of us to save our Tampa Bay children. Our children are this community’s most precious gift and every one of us has a responsibility to keep them safe.
