Our work in the community

Central Ohio Newborn Medicine is involved in the health and well-being of babies outside of the hospital environment. Here are some of the causes close to our hearts.

OhioHealth Mother’s Milk Bank

We support OhioHealth Mother’s Milk Bank, which donates pasteurized, human donor milk to those who are unable to provide it themselves. Available by prescription, it’s an unparalleled source of nourishment to babies who are ill, premature, or fighting life-threatening conditions. Central Ohio Newborn Medicine’s Dr. Craig Anderson is the founder and current medical director for Mother’s Milk Bank.

For more information on becoming a breast milk donor, contact the Mothers’ Milk Bank of Ohio at 614.544.0810.

Easter Seals Central and Southeast Ohio

Easter Seals provides exceptional services for individuals with disabilities or special needs and their families to live, learn, work, and play in their communities. Our practice has been actively involved in the leadership of this organization, with our physicians serving as members of the Board for over 10 years.

March of Dimes

Central Ohio Newborn Medicine is a strong supporter of the March of Dimes, an organization well known for its education and advocacy roles emphasizing the importance of delivering term healthy babies. The March of Dimes is a resource for families whose babies are admitted to our NICUs (Neonatal Intensive Care Units). Our team supports and participates in their Walk for Healthy Babies annually.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Our team supports “Discover the Dream,” a local fundraiser in Columbus for St. Jude Children’s Hospital, a premier children’s research and patient care hospital. Known for over five decades for research breakthroughs and unparalleled patient care, St. Jude has played a pivotal role in advancing pediatric cancer survival rates from 20-to-80 percent. It is a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children.

Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio

The mission of the Down Syndrome Association is to “support families, promote community involvement and encourage a lifetime of opportunities for people with Down syndrome” so that people with Down syndrome may “achieve their fullest potential in an accepting and inclusive community.” This is a cause we are passionate about, and our team participates in the annual Dancing with Our Stars gala, as well as supporting the association in a variety of other ways throughout the year.
