I'm proud to announce a new Education and Awareness program that the Preeclampsia Foundation is promoting, in order to directly reach 50,000+ at-risk women in 2010.
Through distribution of Preeclampsia Foundation materials at local Baby Fair's, we can reach thousands of at-risk women, in a short period of time. YOU can make a difference in someone's life. By providing the life saving Signs and Symptoms materials, we can raise awareness amongst this most critical population, and perhaps help them start a dialogue with their health care provider.
The Preeclampsia Foundation has Education and Awareness Grant's available to cover costs associated with hosting a booth.
To that end, we are seeking:
1. Five or Six Regional Baby Fair Coordinator's. No prior baby fair experience required. Training will be provided. Duties will consist of online search for available baby fairs in your region, promoting the baby fairs to our membership and providing guidance to members who wish to host a baby fair booth in their area. Baby Fair Coordinators will be mentored by Kara Boeldt, Volunteer Development Director. Please contact me for more information. Kara.Boeldt@preeclampsia.org
Additionally, we will be seeking volunteers who are interested in hosting a baby fair booth in their area.
Thank you for considering this valuable contribution to those mothers, babies, and families who may someday experience a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy!
