March of Dimes Meeting this Monday February 25th at 7pm in Room 0302 H in
Hornbake Library!!
Are you pre-med? Interested in volunteering at the NICU? Want to network
with March of Dimes chapter staff and meet inspirational people and go to
conference nationwide?
Then join the March of Dimes Collegiate Council at
UMD! 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 serious cause for concern. Premature birth
costs more than $26 billion a year and takes a high toll on families.
Babies born just a few weeks early are at risk of severe health problems and
lifelong disabilities. Premature birth is the number 1 killer of newborns.
The March of Dimes is the biggest non profit organization dedicated to
preventing premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality though
fundraising,
advocacy, and research. Since abolishing polio, the foundation has moved
its focus to premature birth and infant mortality.
