The goal of this  project was to decrease low birth weight and fetal/ infant mortality by improving health behaviors among pregnant and non-pregnant women of childbearing age, and to reduce disparities in adequacy of prenatal care, low birth weight, and fetal/ infant mortality experienced by racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. During this project Caroline worked on specific objectives and strategies outlined in the 2019 – 2021 Community Health Improve Plan for the Naugatuck Valley to address the determinants of health, and improve health equity among women and infants in the Valley.
