The March of Dimes is a champion for Babies because we take action in our
Florida community Research and Community Grants—in 2008, the Florida Chap-
ter awarded more than $500,000 in state and local grants.
Community Services—We provide leadership and a presence by partnering
with community agencies to help them provide quality services to pregnant
women e.g. in Miami, the MOMmobile—a prenatal medical mobile unit provides
services to women who otherwise couldn’t afford it. In addition, we have
Stork’s programs, NICU Family Support programs, and family centered care.

Advocacy—March of Dimes advocated for the Florida Newborn Screening Program
that expanded the neonatal screening program from 5 disorders to 29 disorders that
help to identify potentially catastrophic, but treatable illnesses, and reduce health
care costs.
