“AdvaMed is proud to support the reauthorization of the PREEMIE Act, a bipartisan bill that passed in the House,” said Scott Whitaker, AdvaMed President and CEO. “If we are going to succeed in reducing pre-term births, it is critical that we invest in the research to understand its causes and promote the availability and use of evidence-based standards, especially in minority and underserved communities.
