AMCHP and the March Dimes Team Up to March for Babies
By Lauren Raskin Ramos, MPH
AMCHP Director of Programs
Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. To raise awareness and support of prematurity prevention, AMCHP and the March of Dimes are sponsoring a mini-march for babies during the AMCHP Annual Conference. Join our Team, AMCHP Steps for Babies, to lend your support!
Bring your warm clothes and walking shoes (we plan to walk outside!) and participate in a one mile walk on Monday, March 8, 2010 following the plenary on improving birth outcomes. Jennifer Howse, President, March of Dimes, the March of Dimes national ambassador family, and AMCHP President, Phyllis Sloyer will lead us in a walk through National Harbor.
If you are not able to walk with us at the conference, please consider joining AMCHP Steps for Babies as a sponsor. All funds that we raise will support the Maryland National Capital Area chapter of the March of Dimes. Visit AMCHP’s March for Babies Team webpage and sign up to walk with us or to donate to our Team. Together we can make a difference!
