The March of Dimes also acts globally: sharing best practices in perinatal health and helping improve birth outcomes where the needs are the most urgent.

We are honored that our Chief Operating Officer, Jonathan Herman, sits on the March of Dimes New Jersey Board of Directors.
Comfort Zone Camp is a nonprofit 501(c)3 bereavement camp that transforms the lives of children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. The free camps include confidence building programs and age-based support groups that break the emotional isolation grief often brings. Comfort Zone Camps are offered to children 7-17, and are held year-round across the country. For more information, visit www.comfortzonecamp.org.
Our relationship with Comfort Zone Camp began as a personal donation from Suzy, Meg and Mari for our Chief Operating Officer, Jonathan Herman, who lost both his parents by the age of 12. We have now become a corporate donor, Suzy had the opportunity to visit the camp and sits on the Massachusetts Advisory Council. Additionally, Jonathan Herman and Nicole French, Regional Director of Acelleron Medical Products, sit on the New Jersey Advisory Council.
The Professional Center for Child Development
The Professional Center for Child Development’s mission is to provide educational and therapeutic services for children of all abilities and their families, working with each child to develop to his or her full potential. They strive to eliminate barriers to growth and development for children with disabilities and families coping with health issues and challenges. For more information, please visit www.theprofessionalcenter.org.
The Professional Center is an amazing organization that has supported many families in the Acelleron Maternal Health & Wellness community. Megan and her family have been so grateful for the support the Professional Center provided their family during her son’s diagnosis of autism in 2013. During his time at the Professional Center he made amazing gains for which they are forever grateful. We are so happy to give back and be a part of their fundraising efforts.
