Embassy Suites * 2800 American Blvd West * Bloomington, MN 5543 Directions

Plan now to join dedicated researchers, health professionals, stillbirth families, stillbirth advocates and concerned individuals as we gather for the 4th biennial Stillbirth Summit.

The Star Legacy Foundation Stillbirth Summit 2019 is a major educational and networking event expected to draw more than 300 interdisciplinary professionals, advocates and families. Presenters will share innovative research in stillbirth prevention and perinatal bereavement.

Day 1 of this 3 day conference consists of practical applications of contemporary evidence. Presentations offered in two concurrent tracks – pick and choose from the lectures as you wish.

Days 2 and 3 include round table presentations on current scientific research evidence in the identification of stillbirth risk factors, management strategies and description/evaluation of the barriers to stillbirth prevention. Researchers, clinicians and others have been invited to share successes, experiences, and research with a varied, inter-disciplinary audience.

The audience for the Stillbirth Summit 2019 will include physicians, midwives, nurses, social workers, therapists, clergy, diagnostic sonographers, researchers, program administrators, parents, parent advocates, families, and policy experts and more.
