On June 20 and 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Clayton County Board of Health at 1117 Battlecreek Road, Jonesboro is hosting a Recruitment Drive for its Parents as Teachers (PAT) Program. This new program offers breastfeeding education and assistance, nutrition education, home/crib safety assessments, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) education, healthcare referrals for mother and child, infant carrier and child car seat education workshops, education and assistance regarding violence and domestic abuse, clothing assistance, access to dental care, referral (if necessary) to smoking and drug cessation programs, and developmental screening for infants and children up to age 5.

The program, made possible through funding from the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta, is meant to target the areas of Clayton County with the highest rates of premature birth and infant death. For that reason, the program is only available to African American women between the age of 30 and 44 in their first trimester of pregnancy living in the 30236, 30238, and 30274 ZIP codes.

Call (678) 610-7298 or e-mail twannanelson@dhr.state.ga.us for more information or to pre-register.
