Low-Income Mothers & Pregnancy: How Prevention Science Influenced President's Obama's Budget? May 28, 2009, Dinner & Awards Ceremony, Hyatt Regency.
Low-income mothers and mothers-to-be would become eligible for a proposed nurse-family partnership program under President Obama's budget proposals. Prevention science has demonstrated that programs like this can lead to improved prenatal health, fewer childhood injuries and fewer subsequent pregnancies. More than three decades of research, especially research conducted by Dr. David Olds, Ph.D., Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado at Denver, played an important role in the President's decision to invest in programs that can help low-income mothers now and save money in the long run.
