Project Details

What We Need
  • 1-2 page press release that can be distributed to news outlets
Additional Details

We are looking for a press release as we launch our Childbirth Education Curriculum. We are focused on educating refugees and immigrants and would like to reach other organizations, non-profits, educators, medical providers and universities to tell them about our curriculum.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a curriculum guide, presentation and metrics, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have preliminary data, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We are getting ready to launch our childbirth education curriculum state and nationwide and would like to share how beneficial and effective it is to have a curriculum that meets the specific needs of refugees and immigrants. Unlike traditional western childbirth education materials our curriculum reflects the community it serves to educate.
