Dr. Judith Gorra, MD will chair the Matters of Taste event for 2009.  “I am honored to be the chair of such a worth while event.  I am delighted to be working with a national organization where money we raise will be used to help families in the state of Delaware. It’s good for our families to know that there is an organization out there providing resources if children are born premature.”  Stated Dr. Gorra, Matters of Taste chair

Funds raised by Matters of Taste support lifesaving research and educational programs aimed at giving every baby a healthy start.  In Delaware premature birth is one of the most urgent infant health problems. It affects approximately 1,500 families and babies in the state and more than half a million babies each year nationally, with the number growing every day.  Babies born too soon are more likely to die, have disabilities and live with lifelong challenges.  The March of Dimes is committed to reducing this toll by funding research to find the answers to premature birth and providing comfort and information to families who are affected.

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies®, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
