“March of Dimes knocked this training out of the ballpark! My staff walked away with new information and were reminded of the amazing work they do for NICU families. Staff resiliency is always on my mind, and the session on caring for yourself was such an important message, and came at just the right time! Thank you, March of Dimes.”
