On this week’s, Conversations on Health Care, Mark and Margaret speak with Dr. Alan Fleischman, medical director of the March of Dimes Foundation, about improving maternal-child health, reducing premature births and eliminating disparities in birth outcomes.
The Community Health Center has had a long relationship with the March of Dimes, especially with our efforts to bring CenteringPregnancy care to our patients.
Yet our commitment to the March of Dimes goes much deeper. On Sunday May 1, from 9 a.m. to noon, some CHC employees and AmeriCorps members will be walking to help raise money for March of Dimes.
The money raised at the March for Babies will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. It will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
If you would like to join the CHC team and show your support for the March of Dimes’ incredible work, please sign up at on the CHC Team Page. Significant others and children are also welcome.
