Ohio Prematurity Caucus Forming to Meet Challenge
Date:1/22/2008

unce the formation of the caucus and declare its intent to tackle the rising health crisis of prematurity in Ohio. Right now 2,864 babies are born in an average week in Ohio -- of those 358 are preterm, and another 22 babies will die before reaching their first birthday. Senator Faber says he's proof that this is a community-wide issue, "Premature births are on the rise, and can affect any family irrespective of health or economic status. It is my hope that the Ohio Prematurity Caucus will create a forum where speakers can educate caucus members on the data and the research, and, together we can find ways to affect change in this tragic phenomenon." Faber says it's time that all of Ohio's counties make it a priority to educate the public that preterm birth can happen to anyone. The causes of nearly half of all preterm births are unknown. He says counties should also be encouraging health care providers to take an aggressive stance to prevent complications.

Dr. Iams will speak about the medical impact of prematurity, and the challenges facing health care providers. Dr. Iams is the Frederick P. Zuspan Endowed Chair, Professor and Vice Chair of Obstetrics & Gynecology at OSU and is also a past president of the Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine. Dr. Iams is widely recognized for his extensive research related to the epidemiology of and prevention of preterm birth. Dr. Iams says this has become an issue the community can no longer afford to ignore.

The U.S. Public Health Service Healthy People 2010 objectives have adopted a goal of reducing the overall rate of prematurity to no more than 7.6 percent of all births by 2010.
