March of Dimes is pleased to announce the appointment of Gabriella Sherman MD, MBA to the March of Dimes Greater Los Angeles Market Board. Dr. Sherman is the Vice President of Clinical Innovation and Performance Improvement at Huntington Hospital. As a member of the local March of Dimes board, Dr. Sherman will serve along other Los Angeles leaders as a volunteer, representing the public in governing the organization and advancing the fundraising efforts, raising critical funds to benefit the March of Dimes’ mission to lead the fight to improve the health of all moms and babies. She will serve a 3-year term.

As a member of Huntington Hospital’s executive management team, Dr. Sherman leads initiatives for patient quality improvements. “I’m honored to be named to the board of the Los Angeles March of Dimes, whose efforts to advocate for the health and safety of babies aligns with the work of Huntington Hospital’s Level III NICU, the only of its kind in our region. Our advanced care for mothers and babies, combined with March of Dimes research and outreach, is an alignment that is professionally rewarding and personally very meaningful.”

“We’re honored to have Dr. Sherman join our market board,” says Kari Boatner, March of Dimes Greater Los Angeles Executive Director. “Her passion for innovation and our cause, will strengthen March of Dimes’ work to find new solutions to give all babies the best possible start in life.”

March of Dimes gives 4 million babies born each year the best possible start. Nearly half a million of them are born prematurely or with birth defects. Premature birth and its complications are the largest contributors to infant death in the U.S. and pregnancy-related death has more than doubled over the past 25 years. From advocacy to education to research, we’re working to level the playing field so that all moms and babies are healthy.
