Don't miss your opportunity to participate at the Fourth Annual WSU APRN CE Conference by becoming an exhibitor and/or a sponsor! Approximately 200 Advanced Practice Nurses throughout the State are expected to attend.
Since 2010, Kansans have collaborated in finding ways to improve our infant mortality rate-a key indicator of community health. And we've made progress. In September 2016, the state reported a record-low infant mortality rate. However, our babies of color continue to die before their first birthday at a much higher rate-Hispanic babies half as much more often, and African American babies twice as much.

We believe all babies deserve to reach their first birthdays. Come learn with us from nationally renowned speakers, local community leaders, and research experts and how to make your Fetal and Infant Mortality Review program more robust and how you can be an instrument for change to help more babies thrive in Kansas.

Hotel Information:
