Community Baby Shower
A Partnership with Black Health Care Coalition
In 2012, the Children’s Mercy Office of Equity and Diversity partnered with Kansas City’s Black Health Care Coalition to host three Community Baby Showers each fiscal year, in pursuance of the goal to educate, provide interactive learning opportunities, resources and support to new and expectant parents.
The partnership between Children's Mercy and Kansas City's Black Heath Care Coalition is only one component of an ongoing effort to eliminate health and health-care disparities and inequities, while addressing concerns identified in the Children’s Mercy, Community Needs Assessment. Faculty and staff from both organizations, along with community health professionals join together to ensure that each Community Baby Shower is an extraordinary every time event, filled with fun, food and gifts for each participant.
