Best Babies Zone
October 10, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The Best Babies Zone (BBZ) Westlawn Health & Wellness Ambassador team will host a meal and discussion to build the capacity of residents to develop and advocate for a neighborhood where all babies thrive and all families are successful. BBZ Westlawn is a place-based, multi-sector approach to reducing disparities in infant mortality and birth outcomes by mobilizing community residents and organizational partners to address the social and economic determinants of health. Milwaukee’s Westlawn neighborhood was awarded this national designation in 2017. BBZ Westlawn encompasses Milwaukee’s Choice Neighborhood, a 3-square mile region on Milwaukee’s Northwest Side anchored by the Westlawn Gardens neighborhood. Co-led by the City of Milwaukee’s Choice Neighborhood Initiative, City of Milwaukee Health Department and United Way, it prioritizes the development of strong community leaders who build social networks to address community-identified challenges.
