The Center for Prevention of Preterm Birth builds upon the long and rich history at Cincinnati Children’s of advancing perinatal health. It also joins major initiatives that have identified prevention of prematurity as an area of focus for the next decade.
We have a robust, integrated effort across several institutions − Cincinnati Children’s, the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, the UC McMicken College of Arts and Sciences, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Case Western Reserve University, MetroHealth in Cleveland, Vanderbilt University, Dartmouth College, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, the University of Iowa and Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati.
