Bizzell Directors Support the Maryland March of Dimes Walk
Two directors from the Bizzell Group, Jovan Silva and Trevis Cage, participated in the Baltimore March for the Babies walk, hosted by the March of Dimes (MOD). As members of the Delta Lambda chapter of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, they raised nearly $1,500 for the event.
MOD leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies. They believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. For 80 years, MOD has helped millions of babies survive and thrive. They’re building on that legacy to level the playing field for all moms and babies, no matter their age, socioeconomic background, or demographics. They advocate for policies that prioritize their health, support radical improvements to the care moms and babies receive, and pioneer research to find solutions to the biggest health threats to moms and babies. MOD pioneered the vaccine research leading to the eradication of polio in the United States, and then shifted focus to address some of the biggest health threats to moms and babies with innovations like folic acid, newborn screening, and surfactant therapy. Today, they educate medical professionals and the public about best practices, support lifesaving research, provide comfort and support to families in neonatal intensive care units, and advocate for those who need them most: moms and babies.
