Prematurity Prevention Initiative
Premature birth is a leading cause of infant mortality. Racial disparities in care lead to higher rates of preterm birth for Black and African American women.
The Prematurity Prevention Initiative’s (PPI) goal is to reduce the number of babies born too soon and eliminate racial disparities in New Jersey through community and professional education programs.
Educational presentations and resources are available for everyone! Free dynamic sessions highlight preventive care for expecting parents, healthcare barriers, and resources for parents with a history of preterm births.
