At NISSA, we help teach you how to protect your infant during sleep. We provide comfort and support to families affected by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) & other unexpected deaths of an infant. We also educate the public and professionals on how to reduce the risk of sudden infant death.

Our work is so important - especially to our African American and Native American families because they are affected in far greater numbers. Please spread the word that infants should always sleep on their backs.
