Spokane Regional Health District, Providence Health Care and Inland Northwest SIDS/SUID Foundation are proud to present:
Stay Close, Sleep Apart is an education campaign aimed at reducing the sleep-related causes of sudden unexplained infant death (SUID).
Please help us spread the word to those who may benefit from these simple messages, focused on the ABCs of safe infant sleep!
·        ’A’ is for alone: Baby should never be in a bed with another person where he could be rolled on and smothered.
·        ‘B’ is for on the baby's back: An infant should be placed to sleep on their back, never on their side or stomach.
·        ‘C’ is for crib: Always put baby to sleep in a crib, with only a firm mattress and tight-fitting sheet.
The centerpiece of the campaign is a 60-second spot that shows parents and caregivers these ABCs of safe sleep. Multiple versions of an easy-to-understand rack card are also available on the campaign’s website at www.safesleepspokane.org.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,


Itis with heavy hearts that we share with you the news of the loss of Lori Moriarty who passed away early on Sunday, November 1, 2015 after battling cancer.   Lori, Commander (retired) and Vice President of National DEC, was first and foremost a champion for children and endlessly passionate about serving and protecting them.  She put her dedication to helping children into action by being one of the founders of the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children and the Colorado Alliance for Drug Endangered Children. She also served on many nonprofit boards, committees, and task forces.


Dynamic, inspirational, and above all positive-Lori spoke around the country about her "Ah-Ha" moment as an undercover narcotics officer when she realized they were getting the drugs but missing the children. She knew there had to be a better way to help the little ones that she encountered and she worked tirelessly with others to develop collaborative solutions. Through DEC training , Lori empowered professionals to realize that we all have a role to play when it comes to protecting children living in drug environments. She reminded us that "Children + Drugs = Risk."


We mourn the loss of Lori - our beloved friend and colleague - and our heartfelt prayers and sympathy go to her family, friends, and all those who knew her. We will share information as it becomes available regarding services and ways to recognize Lori's life and work.   If you'd like to read more about Lori's life and career, you can do so at http://www.nationaldec.org/staff.html.


We also invite and encourage you to go to our Facebook page and share your thoughts, comments and memories with others in the DEC Community. Over the coming days, we will be posting pictures and stories that highlight Lori's life and work.


In this time of sadness, we also celebrate the amazing journey of Lori's life and recognize the legacy she built to help children and families in need.  We are committed to continuing the effort to bring the DEC mission to every community. Please join us in  honoring Lori and her work with renewed fervor to help carry forward the DEC mission and continue to rescue, defend, shelter and support at-risk children.




Chuck, Eric, Stacee, and Susannah
