Women's Health Symposium: Removing the Barriers from Maternal & Infant Health Disparities
The March of Dimes Nevada Chapter held it's annual Women's Health Symposium as part of its Prematurity Awareness activities for November. Over 100 doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals in Las Vegas and Reno attended the event to learn more about disparities in Nevada.
The March of Dimes also took the opportunity to present Assemblywoman Ellen Spiegel the Peggy Pierce Advocacy Award for all her hard work to improve maternal and child health in Nevada. Assemblywoman Spiegel currently sits on the Nevada MCH Advisory Board, was a member of the Assembly Health and Human Services Committee, and worked hard on legislation that protected kids from bullying and help working moms have a place at work to express milk. Congratulations!
