Education and development for health professionals
Prematurity Prevention Symposium
The Prematurity Prevention Symposium enhances prematurity prevention efforts in the United States through the sharing of information about the design, implementation and evaluation of interventions, programs, policies and other activities undertaken to help prevent preterm births. It also brings together a coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to promoting prematurity prevention.
The Prematurity Prevention Symposium is organized by the March of Dimes in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) and Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN).
For more than 30 years, the March of Dimes has offered continuing education to perinatal nurses. Developed by top experts in the field, our print and online materials can be used for individual or group study. We also support future nursing leaders by awarding scholarships to students who are pursuing graduate degrees in perinatal nursing.
Genetics & Your Practice educates health care professionals who serve women before and during pregnancy, infants and children, adolescents and adults. The program provides information and resources to help busy professionals integrate genetics into their practices.
