Congenital Syphilis Program in Maryland Underway

Posted in Updates on 3.23.2018

After winning a bid to provide educational outreach services in the city of Baltimore, Alosa Health has partnered with Maryland Department of Health to develop educational training materials on the topic of congenital syphilis prevention and to deploy a field-based educational program. Rates of congenital syphilis has been on the rise in the state of Maryland in recent years. Key messages on congenital syphilis prevention include screening all pregnant women at  first  prenatal care visit,  28  weeks, and delivery.

We are proud to welcome Shelley Bacchus to the team as our primary clinical educator for this program.
