The AHA today presented its 2020 Award of Honor to the March of Dimes for its commitment to advancing the health and well-being of mothers and babies. The annual award recognizes individuals or organizations for exemplary contributions to U.S. health and well-being through leadership on major health policies or social initiatives.

“For more than 80 years, March of Dimes has led the charge to address maternal and infant mortality and morbidity,” said AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. “Its legacy of compassion has improved — and in many cases saved — the lives of millions of mothers and infants around the world. The AHA applauds the organization’s decades of leadership and advocacy prioritizing the health of mothers and infants and its steadfast commitment to advancing research on issues threatening their health.”
