November is Prematurity Awareness Month
AMCHP is pleased to be a member of the March of Dimes Prematurity Awareness Campaign Steering committee and partner in their efforts to raise awareness about prematurity. The awareness month kicks off on Nov. 1 with the release of the March of Dimes (MoD) Premature Birth Report Card. Nov. 17 marks World Prematurity Day, and MoD and its partner organizations worldwide are asking everyone to help spread the word on the serious problem of premature birth. This year, they created an online media kit that you can use to support prematurity awareness in your publications, e-mails, websites and other communications.
