The Crisis in Our Community Babies-mortality-graphic

Every baby deserves to celebrate his or her first birthday.

The greatest gift our community can give each baby is a healthy and safe first year of life that sets him or her on a path to thrive each year beyond that. To do so, CelebrateOne and its partners will take on the most significant factors that contribute to Columbus’ high infant mortality rate:
* Reducing premature births
* Eliminating sleep-related deaths
* Connecting the disconnected

About CelebrateOne In June 2014, the Greater Columbus Infant Mortality Task Force ended its 6-month process with the release of its final report to the residents of Franklin County. In it were eight recommendations to reduce the community’s alarming infant mortality rate by 40 percent and cut the racial health disparity gap in half by 2020. 
CelebrateOne was created in November 2014 to carry out the Task Force’s recommendations and ensure Franklin County meets its ambitious goal.
