Dear Fatality Review Colleagues,

Welcome to Denver and the 2018 National Child Death Review Conference, Helping
Communities Celebrate More Birthdays. Your presence here is a testament to your ongoing
commitment to the health and wellbeing of your community.
In fatality review, we face down the terrible problems of infant and child deaths every day. There
is something significant and valuable in meeting together with those who share these
experiences. It is our hope that you find this gathering to be one of reflection, partnership, and
growth within a committed community of like-minded professionals. Just as each of you hail from
very different states, full of rich and diverse communities, we are grateful for the ways in which
your state’s approach to child fatality review and prevention can enhance our national efforts
and understanding. Thank you for joining us.
We are excited to share this year’s keynote and breakout sessions with you. They represent
important aspects of the fatality review process, from topic-specific deaths, team building and
leadership, to data quality, self care, and prevention efforts—to name a few. We know you put a
great deal of thought and care into the trainings you provide to your partners, and it has been a
pleasure to think through how we can support your work through the content we provide for
these three days.
Our speakers and our staff are here as a resource for you. As you go through the sessions, we
encourage you to ask questions, seek clarification, and share ideas. Should you have any concerns
or need any assistance, please find any staff member from the National Center, and we will be
happy to help you. Additionally, I encourage you to connect with our prevention partners while
you are here. They have excellent resources and experience to share.
When I reflect on the breadth of expertise and effort represented by those of you in attendance,
it is both humbling and inspiring. You are doing incredible good for your communities, and it is a
amazing privilege to support your work. Thank you for all you do every day to help your
communities and their children celebrate more birthdays.
In partnership,

Abby Collier

Award Ceremony—Theresa M. Covington Award for Excellence in Fatality
Review
Wednesday, 12:00 PM
Acknowledging and celebrating the significant contribution Ms. Covington has made to the field of child
fatality review, we will begin a tradition of awarding the Theresa M. Covington Award
for Excellence in Fatality Review. Child Death Review became a known and respected
public health and injury prevention program due, in large part, to her national
leadership and the interdisciplinary partnerships she helped to build. Teri spent the
first half of her 34-year public health career as a Peace Corps volunteer in the
Philippines, the health educator fore the N. Cheyenne, and director of two teen health
centers in Flint, Michigan. She built the Michigan CDR program and managed it and the
state FIMR program for 8 years. She became the founding director of the National
Center for Fatality Review and Prevention from its inception in 2002 through 2017. She
continues to be a tireless advocate for the health and wellbeing of America’s children
in her new role as the Director of Within Our Reach, an office established at the Alliance
for Strong Families and Communities to advance recommendations from the
Commission to Eliminate Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities. In future years, this award will be given in
Teri’s honor to nominated fatality review professionals who exhibit fatality review leadership, effective
excellence in collaborating with partners, and advocacy for the health and wellbeing of children. We
encourage you to congratulate Teri on her decades-long investment in the nation’s child fatality review
systems.
