Mission Statement

The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. This mission is carried out through research, advocacy, community sevices and education.

Description

The March of Dimes is inspired by all babies - those born healthy and those who need our help to survive and thrive. They are the millions of reasons behind our urgent mission and why every day we fight for health insurance for all pregnant women and children, push for newborn screening that could save lives and prevent mental retardation, provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care, and support all-important, Nobel Prize-winning research offering hope for preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects.
