REGISTRATION 10:30 -11:00 AM
Thank you to the dedicated parents and families of babies harmed by GBS for creating GBS awareness and organizing their own events to raise funds for GBSI!
Group B Strep International (GBSI) is working to provide critical GBS information to all parents so they know how to:
1) Help protect their baby during pregnancy (A fever in the mom can be a sign of infection in her baby!)
2) Help protect their baby at birth (All pregnant women should be tested for GBS--many countries still don't!)
3) Help protect their baby once home from the hospital (All parents should be able to recognize the signs of GBS infection BEFORE they leave the hospital!)
GBSI provides complimentary patient materials and resources to health care providers and actively engages with providers at various perinatal conferences and exhibits around the world. Thank you for helping more babies to born healthy and stay healthy!
