Pregnant women in 14 states will receive prenatal services and education from the March of Dimes, thanks to a generous grant from the WellPoint Foundation. The funding supports two major March of Dimes programs: CenteringPregnancy® and Quality Improvement Initiatives Related to 39 Weeks of Pregnancy. The WellPoint Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization wholly funded by WellPoint, Inc. The Foundation focuses on strategic initiatives that address and provide innovative solutions to health care challenges, as well as promoting the Healthy Generations Program, a multi-generational initiative that targets specific disease states and medical conditions. The WellPoint Foundation is also a sponsor of the Missouri Broadcasters for Babies event.
March of Dimes is a premier nonprofit brand and a very strong nonprofit partner. The organization has a track record of achieving marketing and business objectives with its clients through its diverse portfolio of events and programs.
