"Our awardees are most deserving of this prestigious honor by March of Dimes," says Linda A. McCauley, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean of Emory’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing.

The nursing profession has played a key role in the history and mission success of the March of Dimes dating back to its founding in 1938.
Every year in the US, more than half a million babies are born too soon, 19,500 of them here in the state of Georgia. The March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies and support families in times of need.
