EMD Serono, the healthcare business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany in the U.S. and Canada, continues its commitment to the health of all moms and babies. Their Healthy Women, Healthy Economies initiative aligns with March of Dimes’ mission to improve maternal outcomes, and focuses on the intrinsic link between a woman’s economic prosperity and the overall wellbeing of herself and her family.
Now in the fifth year of our partnership, EMD Serono will use our It Starts With Mom platform to engage those on their journey to parenthood and will engage employers in best-practice conversations to support employees before, during and after pregnancy. To achieve positive and enduring impact, EMD Serono also supports our advocacy efforts to promote state and federal policies that will provide equitable access to healthcare while seeking supportive work environments for all families.
As leaders in reproductive health, EMD Serono helps March of Dimes educate consumers and healthcare professionals about infertility, in particular the impact on maternal health in communities of color, by lending their expertise to our Healthy Moms Strong Babies webinar series.
