The CJ Foundation for SIDS participates in regional and national conferences as a way to increase awareness of SIDS and to educate about SIDS Risk Reduction and Infant Safe Sleep. Educators distribute materials and provide on the spot education to attendees, many of whom are grateful for the opportunity to ask questions and discuss their concerns. Our knowledgeable educators address many topics including childcare licensing regulations, sleep position policies, developmental delays, supervised tummy time, and plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome).
Through these ongoing educational efforts, the CJ Foundation for SIDS is providing information to countless people across the country. Below is a list of organizations whose conferences the CJ Foundation has participated at in the past.
