Adolescent, nonwhite women with less than high school education have infants at higher risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) but face barriers to risk reduction education. We implemented a novel school-based health education program (grades 4 to 12) and found an association between exposure and awareness of risk factors.
