    Dr. Sheri Carroll named 2013 Wilmington Signature Chefs Auction Chair

    Wilmington, North Carolina, September 09, 2013 —

    The Southeastern Division of March of Dimes is delighted to announce that Dr. Sheri Carroll will serve as the 2013 Wilmington Signature Chefs Auction Chair. Currently, Carroll is a Neonatologist for Coastal Carolina Neonatology, PLLC.

    “I am so excited and honored to be the 2013 Signature Chefs Auction Chair,” stated Carroll.  “Coastal Carolina Neonatology and The March of Dimes are waging war on premature birth. Please join our fight."

    The 2013 Wilmington Signature Chefs Auction will feature the culinary talents of area’s finest local chefs and restaurants. Attendees will be able to sample signature dishes from more than 8 local chefs while bidding on unique and tempting silent and live auction packages, all to benefit the March of Dimes mission. The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. This mission is carried out through programs of research, community services, education and advocacy.

    A Wilmington native, Carroll received her medical degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) and completed her Pediatric Residency at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, N.Y. After spending a year in Sydney, Australia as a Neonatal Registrar, and two years in general practice as a pediatrician in upstate N.Y., she returned to North Carolina to complete her Neonatal Perinatal fellowship at UNC. Carroll returned home to Wilmington in 2006 as a neonatologist at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. She is board certified in Pediatrics and Neonatal Medicine.

    Carroll was part of the historic move to the Betty H. Cameron Women and Children's Hospital (BHCWCH) in September of 2008. Carroll's interest is in quality improvement and leads improvement teams at the local, state and national level. She has led a local infection reduction initiative at BHCWCH that saved over nine babies’ lives since 2011. She has been a state leader in the Perinatal Quality Collaborative of North Carolina (PQCNC), a voluntary statewide collaborative of stakeholders that strive to make NC the best state to be born. She led 18 NC hospital teams in a two year collaborative to reduce infections related to central catheters that has saved over a kindergarten class. She is also a faculty member of the Vermont Oxford Network, a nonprofit, voluntary organization of over 950 Neonatal Intensive Care Units worldwide that collaborate to improve infant’s health outcomes. She serves as a team leader for six to eight hospital teams nationwide to collaborate in two year cycles to achieve shared goals, like reducing infection and working better in teams.

    “We are so fortunate to have such a top-tier community volunteer as Dr. Carroll serve as the Chair for our 2013 diamond anniversary event,” said Gretchen Jones, Director of the Southeastern Division of March of Dimes. “She has graciously agreed to support the March of Dimes, and subsequently, to help give babies a healthy start in life.” 

    The Signature Chefs Auction will be held on Thursday, December 5 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.  For more information, contact Jamie Crist at JCrist@marchofdimes.org or directly at 910-452-1515. Alternatively connect with March of Dimes on Facebook at facebook.com/MarchOfDimesNorthCarolina

    In 2013, the March of Dimes celebrates its 75th anniversary and its ongoing work to help babies get a healthy start in life.  Early research led to the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines that all babies still receive.  Other breakthroughs include new treatments for premature infants and children with birth defects.  About 4 million babies are born each year in the United States, and all have benefited from March of Dimes lifesaving research and education.
