Child Fatality Review Board Report

Child Fatality Review Board Report

Dear Community Member:

Montgomery County began reviewing the deaths of its children in 1997. This is the fifth Report to the Community; it reports on the evaluation of child deaths occurring in the years 2005 through 2008 and provides cumulative data from 1997.

A comprehensive, multidisciplinary review is completed for every death of a Montgomery County child. The results of these reviews are shared annually with the State of Ohio as well as contained in this Report. What cannot be captured in this Report is the great loss and sorrow to family, friends and community when a child death occurs. We continue to examine the factors contributing to these children’s deaths in order to improve our understanding of how to prevent them.

I wish to express my sincere appreciation to those individuals who volunteer time from their already demanding schedules to serve on the many committees associated with the Child Fatality Review Board. These professionals truly make a difference in the lives of the children and families in our community.

Sincerely,

James W. Gross, MPH, Chair

Montgomery County Child Fatality Review Board
