Working together to improve the health of moms and babies in our community
The March of Dimes Alaska Chapter and our partner organizations are helping moms have healthier pregnancies and babies begin healthier lives. Below are some programs where our grants and awards are making a difference.
This education and support program combines essential components of prenatal care: health assessments, education and group support. Our program graduates and participants make us proud: The evidence-based approach to prenatal support has been shown to reduce c-sections, premature births and low-birthweight babies. The grant from the March of Dimes Alaska Chapter is used to implement this program at Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation.
