HHS launches Strong Start initiative to increase healthy deliveries and reduce preterm births

http://www.HealthCare.gov

To help reduce the increasing number of preterm births in America and
ensure more babies are born healthy, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
announced more than $40 million in grants to test ways to reverse that
trend, as well as a public campaign to reduce early elective deliveries.

  1. African-American women in Utah have the highest rate of pre-term births & babies with low birth weight, so Project Fresh Start also shares the same goal as the HHS to reduce pre-term births. Thanks for providing this information on the Strong Start Initiative. We joined their Partnership & are always looking for opportunities to partner with the community to reduce infant mortality & improve the health of women & infants in the state of Utah. Please feel free to contact me at projectfreshstart.utah@gmail.com for more information on our program.
