We are very excited to launch a Protect Our Children NOW! in Montana at the Western Montana Clinic (WMC). Vitamin D testing and supplementation will be available at no cost to all pregnant women receiving care at the clinic. The project will include patient and health care provider education, screening and vitamin D supplements–leading to the opportunity for better health for an entire generation.
This is a wonderful opportunity to improve health outcomes and save lives, starting in utero. We aim to help reduce the incidence of preterm births, as well as positively influence the health of pregnant moms and lower the prevalence of early childhood diseases associated with vitamin D deficiency. When you start with vitamin D sufficiency in utero, it is like filling up the gas tank before your summer road trip – you are setting up for health success.
