Every year in the United States, more than half a million babies are born too soon, 17,000 of them right here in Ohio. With your help, the March of Dimes Ohio Chapter works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality through community services, research, education and advocacy.
In May of 2013, the March of Dimes joined with Ohio's leading universities and hospitals to launch the second prematurity research center aimed exclusively at finding the unknown causes of preterm birth. The Prematurity Research Center Ohio Collaborative demonstrates the commitment and enthusiasm of accomplished doctors, scientists, and investigators as they come together in this "team science approach" to solve the mysteries of preterm birth.
