    African American Achievement Award Columbia - 2012

    Tuesday, November 13, 2012
    Time: 7:30 AM
    Registration Time:
    Brookland Banquet and Conference Center
    1066 Sunset Boulevard
    West Columbia , SC 29169

    The African American Achievement Award was established in 2003 by the South Carolina Chapter of the March of Dimes to honor and recognize the commitment and dedication of those positively impacting the African American community. 

    This event is an opportunity to raise awareness of the racial disparities that exist in infant mortality and premature birth within the African American community of South Carolina.  Infant mortality rates are twice as high for African American babies as for Caucasian babies.  In addition to this, babies are nearly twice as likely to be born prematurely as Caucasian babies and African American mothers have the highest rates of inadequate prenatal care compared to other maternal race categories.  The March of Dimes is working for a day when all babies are born healthy.


    Schedule:

    Networking: 7:30 a.m.

    Breakfast: 8:00 a.m.


    Tickets: $100

    To determine how your company or organization can best support babies and their families through the African American Achievement Award, please contact Amanda DuPre at (803)403-8525 or adupre@marchofdimes.com.

    Sponsorship, ticket and/or program advertising information also available.

    The Fleming Family

    Lauren Fleming of Marvin, North Carolina, serves as the 2011 March of Dimes National Ambassador, along with her parents, Nikki and Densel. Lauren was born in 2004 at just 26 weeks, weighing 2 pounds, 1 ounce, and doctors prepared her parents for the worst. During her 5-month stay in newborn intensive care, Lauren was treated for respiratory distress and underwent multiple surgeries related to a damaged vocal cord and a heart defect. After coming home, Lauren thrived and today is a warm and loving 6-year-old who makes friends easily. She loves to draw, create story books and read. She is excited to be the 2011 National Ambassador because, “The March of Dimes helps babies and helped my little sister, Erin, and brother, Corbin, to be born healthy.”
