Funds raised in March for Babies in Arizona, help support Prenatal wellness programs, research grants, newborn intensive care unit (NICU), family support programs, and advocacy efforts for stronger healthier babies. Premature birth is the most urgent infant health problem in the U.S. today. It affects nearly half a million babies each year, including every 1 in 9 babies in Arizona. This past November, the March of Dimes issued its annual Premature Birth Report Card, giving the nation a “C” and Arizona the grade of “C.” March of Dimes is committed to funding research to find the answers to problems that continue to threaten the lives and the health of babies.
For more than 75 years, moms and babies have benefited from March of Dimes research, education, vaccines and breakthroughs.
