March of Dimes awards grant to Memorial Hospital

Posted 11/26/12

PAWTUCKET – The Rhode Island chapter of The March of Dimes has awarded a $20,000 to the Department of Family Medicine at Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island to support enhanced prenatal care.

Through the grant, the hospital seeks to increase prenatal visits as part of the Family Medicine Residency Program. Specific outcomes include improved rates of breastfeeding, reduced smoking rates among pregnant women and improved access to prenatal care, with the larger goal of reducing preterm births and low weight babies in the community.

“We will use the March of Dimes grant as seed money to meet our objective of providing pregnant mothers with group prenatal visits, which is an evidence-based, innovative, successful, and well-liked model of prenatal care,” said Dr. Susanna Magee, director of Maternal Child Health at Memorial Hospital. “We are grateful to those volunteers who support the March of Dimes by participation in events like March for Babies or other important fundraising events.”
