Faces of FIMR: Carol Brady

Outgoing Coalition Executive Director Carol Brady has been featured in the “Faces of FIMR” spotlight in the National Fetal & Infant Mortality Review Spring 2013 newsletter.

The article highlights how using the FIMR process in Northeast Florida has shaped how the Coalition addresses poor birth outcomes and infant mortality. FIMR examines cases with the worst outcomes to identify gaps in maternal and infant services and to promote future improvements. The Coalition began the review in 1995 and has continued to carry it out with funding from the Florida Department of Health.

In the article, Ms. Brady discusses how the FIMR process guided the Coalition into adopting the life-course approach and helped lead to the development of the Magnolia Project.
