Program Director, Moms2B, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH
For a population of women who may often feel forgotten, Twinkle lets each mom know she is important and loved.
Twinkle is the program director for Moms2B, an initiative developed to reduce preterm births and infant mortality in high-risk neighborhoods.
Steven G., who submitted her as a hero, told us: "Twinkle has an innate ability to manage multiple things at various sites across the city with ease and compassion. She makes every mom feel welcome, listened to and cared about. To a population of women who may often feel forgotten or be disenfranchised during past health care experiences, Twinkle lets each mom know she’s important and loved."
Thank you, Twinkle!
