Are you pre-med? Interested in volunteering at the NICU? Want to
network with March of Dimes Collegiate Council and meet inspirational
people? If so, join the March of Dimes Collegiate Council here at
the University of Maryland! Every year, nearly half a million babies are
born too soon in the United States. Our country's premature birth rate has
risen by 36 percent over the last 25 years.That's a serious cause for
concern. Premature birth costs more than $26 billion a year and takes a
high toll on families.
March of Dimes is the largest non-profit organization dedicated to
preventing premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality through
fundraising, advocacy, and research. Come to our first General Body Meeting
(GBM) of this Spring 2013 semester! We will be discussing several events,
fundraisers and activities to highlight this important cause and to raise
funds, so that one day all babies are born healthy. For more
information, please visit our website www.marchofdimesumd.com or email
Alexandra Hudson at [log in to unmask] for more information. Join us
in the fight against premature births!
