Save the date for World Prematurity Day

prematurityawarenessPremature birth is a very serious health problem. Worldwide, 15 million babies are born preterm and more than a million die as a result. Babies who survive often have lifelong health problems such as cerebral palsy, vision and hearing loss and intellectual disabilities.

On November 17, join Tri Sigmas and March of Dimes advocates across the country as we raise awareness about prematurity. Let’s join the fight and Give Them Tomorrow. Students across the country are raising awareness and funds to Give Them Tomorrow, a universal call to do something today to help moms and babies.

Get started today with any – or all! – of these activities during the month of November, Prematurity Awareness Month:

  • 10 tips to do something today
  • 10 tips for your school
  • Light your campus purple
  • Dress in purple for prematurity awareness

Learn more about these activities and how your chapter can participate by downloading the Give Them Tomorrow Toolkit provided through our March of Dimes partnership. Learn more at marchofdimes.org.
