PAK accomplished so much this past year!
To start, PAK was recognized by the Huffington Post, and chosen for its Next Ten campaign, as a charity that will take us into the future! I was profiled and featured in the HuffPost on becoming an advocate for stillbirth prevention. The CDC also selected PAK as a resource for stillbirth!
On the ground, PAK vastly expanded its website, public relations efforts and social media presence (informative, newsworthy posts appear almost daily on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook) and created and launched its first educational video. Members of PAK also engaged with doctors, health care professionals and medical organizations across the country to further its educational mission, and PAK’s Medical Advisory Committee welcomed two new members, including a leading maternal fetal specialist!
PAK continues to support cutting-edge research such as that of cord specialist Dr. Jason Collins and placenta specialist Dr. Harvey Kliman of Yale University. Cord and placenta issues are two major causes of pregnancy complications and stillbirth.
And for the coming year, PAK has a big agenda to continue and expand its media, public relations and medical community efforts. As always, PAK will keep abreast of cutting edge pregnancy research, and will seek to engage with doctors and health care providers who can further its mission. PAK will also create its first mobile application, which will enable expectant mothers with kick counting, a pregnancy checklist and a number of other tools right on their phones. With PAK’s app, an expectant mother will be able enter a doctor’s office educated and empowered like never before!
We hope you will support our cause and thank you for your generosity.
