April 7th is World Health Day

World Health Day is coming up! This year the World Health Organization is focusing on urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy and foster a movement to create societies focused on well-being. This includes bringing attention to systems that produce highly processed, unhealthy foods and beverages that are driving a wave of obesity.

Did you know that maternal obesity is associated with a higher likelihood of GBS colonization during pregnancy?

The WAVES Study

We are working to identify gaps in care and communication surrounding GBS disease. To do this we need your help! We are asking both mothers who have had a baby infected with GBS and those who have not to share their experiences in this survey if they have conceived on or after January 1, 2003.

Please share the link with your contacts and social media. Together we can wave goodbye to GBS disease!
