Child Fatality Review

A Fatality Review is a community planning process in which a team of experts from various community systems and agencies convene to review the circumstances around potentially preventable deaths (e.g. all children). Columbus Public Health's Child Fatality Review Program convenes and supports the state-required Franklin County Child Fatality Review (FCCFR) Board.
