Whats Your Role? Coalition Member Nangy Davidson

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANangy Davidson, BSN is a member of the Coalition member. She represents Flagler Hospital in St. Johns County. She shares her role in preventing infant mortality:

“I am a mother, an aunt, a Godmother and friend to many beautiful children.  Their safety and well-being is of great importance to me.  I am also blessed to work in a profession dedicated to caring for families, beginning at birth and extending into early adulthood.

In my experience, Coalition continues to be a tremendous resource for helping us achieve our personal/professional mission.  Raising awareness of Infant mortality is an example of the work being done to help protect our vulnerable children.”

NIMAM_LOGO_FINALNangy is the Nursing Director of Maternal Child Services at Flagler. She is a member of the St. Johns Infant Mortality Task Force, a local effort to reduce infant mortality rates and improve birth outcomes. Through the Task Force, she has been instrumental in providing education to women and families in the community and supported many efforts to bring resources and services.

We partnered with the task force and coalition to educate our community on the importance of safe sleep, back to sleep, infant CPR and healthy lifestyles.  These efforts play a role in the significant decrease in infant mortality in our county over the last couple of years.
