Prematurity Awareness Month - Get your school involved

Celebrate World Prematurity Day on November 17 and throughout the entire month of November by participating in 10 Baby Steps!

In the U.S., 1 in 10 babies are born premature, and each year, 15 million babies are born too soon worldwide. Unfortunately, more than a million of these babies die before their first birthday. Raise awareness and show your support by taking your own 10 Baby Steps to ending premature birth.

The National Youth Council is made up of 15 college students from around the nation that are dedicated to the mission of the March of Dimes. Please feel free to contact the council for any help or advice you may have about your Prematurity Awareness Month participation at [email protected].
