Through a state proclamation, Governor Ron DeSantis has made October Safe Sleep Awareness Month in Florida, and reminds parents and care givers that safe sleep is the best sleep for infants.
There are about 3,500 sleep-related deaths among U.S. babies every year. These deaths include sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), accidental suffocation and deaths from unknown causes. Suffocation is the leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for infants under the age of one. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
There are steps that parents and care givers can take to help prevent SIDS and suffocation.
Every year, December 1 marks the global observance of World AIDS Day. This year’s national World AIDS Day theme is Ending the HIV Epidemic: Community by Community. The Florida Department of Health is calling on Floridians in all communities to unite in support of those living with HIV and to remember those who we’ve lost. We hope that you’ll join us in our efforts to raise awareness for HIV and AIDS on this World AIDS Day and every day.Full Story on FloridaHealth.gov
