CCI Health & Wellness Services strives to create a more equitable health care experience for our patients and communities made vulnerable by social, economic, and cultural barriers. It’s why we believe every expecting parent deserves a healthy pregnancy and every baby deserves a healthy start no matter their background, insurance status, income, immigration status, or any other factor. We know women can face many challenges in accessing care in our community. In the CCI service area, Prince George’s County faces some of the worst birth outcomes in the state and the county does not offer prenatal care services to its residents, making it more difficult for already underserved women to achieve healthy birth outcomes. More broadly we know:
At CCI, our prenatal program is essential to improving the health of parents and their children. Without appropriate prenatal care, women may experience dangerous complications during pregnancy and labor, and babies are at greater risk for physical and mental disabilities. Quality prenatal care changes the trajectory of patients’ birth outcomes, leading to healthy, full-term babies.
Run Baby Run brings the whole community together. Athletic ability does not matter—all are encouraged to run, walk, jog, push their children in strollers, wheel in their wheelchairs, and make their way to the finish line however they choose.
With your help, we can continue helping those who need access to care the most. All you have to do is register to participate. Ask your friends and family to join, spread the word by sharing our social media channels, and even fundraise on our behalf! Can’t participate? You can still make a donation to benefit our maternal and child health programs!
