WHY: Premature birth is the most serious infant health problem in the United States today. It affects more than half a million babies each year nationwide and 1 in 8 babies in Brevard County. Babies born too soon are more likely to die or have lifelong disabilities. The March of Dimes is committed to reducing this toll by funding research to find the causes of premature birth and providing comfort and information to families. The Healthy Babies Healthy Business® Program was developed by the March of Dimes to assist organizations in reaching out to employees in their childbearing years to provide timely wellness information related to having healthy pregnancies and one of many programs that are funded through your support.
