Future Business Leaders in Vermont Kickoff March for Babies

Posted by Volunteers

Over 150 Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) students from around the state marched to Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, VT, on Friday, March 30, to celebrate the accomplishments and work for healthy babies that is being done throughout the state. They also kicked off the Burlington March for Babies event which will take place on May 5, 2012.

Dr. Roger Young, obstetrician at Fletcher Allen and member of the March of Dimes National Board of Directors, addressed the students on the importance of full term birth and healthy babies. He also talked about the successful reduction in pre-term birthrates in Vermont to a national low of 8.4%.

Roger Clapp, state director of the March of Dimes, encouraged the students to work in their communities to educate their peers on the importance of good health practice for mothers and babies alike.

Thank you to the Vermont State FBLA, a national partner with the March of Dimes, for kicking off March for Babies at your annual state spring conference! All Vermont FBLA chapters will be participating in their local March for Babies campaigns this spring.
