Improving the Health of Babies

with Director of Maternal and Child Health for the March of Dimes Michigan, Kara Hamilton-McGraw

Michigan Community Education Health

The March of Dimes is working to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.  President Franklin Roosevelt’s personal struggle with polio led him to create the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis at a time when polio was on the rise. Better known as the March of Dimes.  The rising incidence of premature birth has demanded action, and the March of Dimes has responded by initiating an intensive, multi-year campaign to raise awareness and find the causes of prematurity.
