Dr. Anton Bizzell understands the importance of fighting for the health of all moms and babies. “As a public health advocate, I can’t think of a more important cause,” he says. “When you support the March of Dimes, you make a statement that you want to live in a world in which healthy moms and strong babies are a priority for us all.” Dr. Bizzell has spent most of his career on public health issues related to access to and quality of medical, substance abuse and behavioral health services. He has extensive experience in collaborating and interacting with professional health and community organizations, as well as expert knowledge in identifying and treating medical diseases in the fields of primary care, mental health and substance abuse.

Moms and babies are facing higher risks than ever before.”
In his role as a board member, Dr. Bizzell will serve as an advocate for the March of Dimes mission, encouraging local businesses and community leaders to join him in supporting the fight for stronger, healthier babies. “The number of babies born prematurely here in Maryland and across the country is not acceptable,” he says. “March of Dimes empowers families with programs, knowledge and tools.”
