- The March of Dimes Foundation, through funding from the Anthem Foundation, has awarded
a grant to Dr. Beth Bailey, Professor and Vice Chair for Research, ETSU Family Medicine.
This new grant, awarded summer 2017, will continue to focus on improving birth outcomes
in Northeast Tennessee. The effort involves collaboration between local healthcare
providers and a free health coach for pregnant patients who need smoking cessation
assistance and support. This will help patients reach their goal of becoming and remaining
smoke free, and improve their chances of a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. We
welcome Destiny Roberts who joined our team as a health coach.
- Congratulations to Dr. Bailey, TIPS Director, who was awarded First Place at the 12th
Annual Women's Health Conference for the poster presentation "The Link Between Pregnancy
Smoking and Poor Birth Outcomes in Northeast Tennessee." Way to go!
