Infant Mortality Collaborative Effort

ADPH is working on a collaborative effort, the Alabama Perinatal Excellence Collaborative (APEC), to lower infant mortality and improve maternal and infant health in Alabama. The March of Dimes has funded a smart phone app that provides obstetric providers with easy access to APEC guidelines at the point of care, as well as an app for patients, My Family Plan.
