Employees raised funds through “Dress Down Week” campaign
Health Advocate, the nation’s leading healthcare advocacy and assistance company, announced today that along with its employees, it donated over $1,500 to the Pennsylvania chapter of the March of Dimes, the local branch of a nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
Employees raised funds through a Dress Down Week campaign, in which they contributed to March of Dimes in order to dress in casual clothes for the week.
“Nearly half a million babies in the U.S. are born too early each year,” said Martin Rosen, Executive Vice President, Health Advocate. “We are proud to support the ongoing efforts of the March of Dimes as they work to raise awareness of this issue and make a difference in the lives of premature babies and their families.”
Health Advocate recently launched its Healthy Baby Program, which offers mothers-to-be special support, such as help finding an in-network obstetrician or pediatrician, answering pregnancy- and benefits-related questions, and preparing for delivery.
By providing personalized support, resources and information, the Healthy Baby Program helps women as they take steps to keep themselves and their babies healthy, coinciding with the mission of the March of Dimes.
The March of Dimes is committed to helping moms and full-term pregnancies and healthy babies as well as researching the problems that threaten the health of babies. Donations to the March of Dimes support programs and initiatives to help give every baby a healthy start in life.
