May 18, 2014

marchofdimes_2Rochester General Health System (RGHS) was a proud sponsor of the “March for Babies,” an event sponsored by the March of Dimes that raises money to help families with premature newborns.

Hundreds of people – including multiple walking teams from RGH - took park in the march yesterday (Sunday, May 18th)  which was held at RIT Park Point.

Kristen Opett RN, vice president and Patient Safety Officer/RGHS also served as marchofdimes_1chairperson for the March of Babies. Kristen told News10 NBC “I think all of us know a baby that was born premature, or those that may have lost babies, and I think our real goal here is to stop that, and all babies will have happy, healthy lives just as my beautiful son has,” said Opett.
