The Wyoming Child Death Review and Prevention Team (WCDRPT) holds five meetings each year.  The WCDRPT reviews and evaluates trends in child deaths, or near death incidents, using specific guidelines and a strategic variety of people involved in human service agencies, justice systems, prevention work and medical professions, as well as citizens.


Through the collaborative review process, the team uses the findings to provide community education and promote awareness and advocacy for the issues that affect the health and safety of Wyoming children.
