Stark County THRIVE
(Toward Health Resiliency for Infant Vitality & Equity)

The disparity in infant mortality between white infants and black infants in Ohio is among the worst in the nation. This trend cannot continue. The goal of the Stark County THRIVE Project is to determine those factors that lead to infant mortality in our community and reduce the overall infant mortality rate as well as the disparity in birth outcomes relative to white and black infants.

The Stark County THRIVE Collaborative Organizational Chart shows the project relationship between funders, supporters, referring agencies, care coordinating agencies, Stark County THRIVE Pathways HUB, funded partners and the community.
