Event Details

In 2018, 22,680 babies were born too early in Florida.  In Florida, the preterm birth rate among black women is 50% higher than the rate among all other women. The 2019 Miami-Dade Prematurity Symposium aims to reduce preterm birth rates, increase equity, and improve outcomes for premature infants through discussion of known causes, potential evidence-based interventions, and best practices.
