May is national Preeclampsia Awareness Month and we’re taking full advantage of this great opportunity to tee-up some wonderful awareness-building education and events throughout the month!
This year’s theme – Take the Preeclampsia Pledge: Know the Symptoms. Spread the Word. – is based on survey findings of 1,500 new and expectant mothers that showed low awareness about specific symptoms to watch out for.
To help address that knowledge gap, we’re hosting a series of social media events during May – add these to your calendar, spread the word and join the discussions!
Follow #PreAM14 for all Twitter activity.
