Prematurity Awareness

November is Prematurity Awareness Month

Join the fight for the health of all moms and babies this November. More than 380,000 babies are born prematurely in the U.S. each year – that’s one baby every two seconds.

Light it Purple

Light your front porch, chapter house, or campus/community landmark purple this November for Prematurity Awareness Month. Let others in your neighborhood and community know why you fight for the health of all moms and babies. Use hashtags #prematurityawareness and tag @sigmasigmasigmanhq and @marchofdimes.

Branded Buttons

Do you want every chapter member to have a Prematurity Awareness Month or World Prematurity Day button? Maybe, your chapter wants to pass out buttons on campus to encourage others to get involved in raising awareness with Tri Sigma.
