Nationwide, close to 20 percent of women don’t have access to prenatal care. Elizabeth House, the non-profit located in Pasadena committed to ending homelessness and abuse in women and children, will be welcoming Dr. Lisa Masterson, OBGYN, former co-host of the medical talk show The Doctors and creator of Health in Heels with Dr. Lisa. The event is on August 1st and designed to raise awareness surrounding the importance of prenatal care. Dr. Lisa will visit Elizabeth House in her Mobile Mom Squad, a Pregnancy Health Aide-sponsored vehicle that offers a broad range of on-site prenatal healthcare services to underprivileged women.
The event will take place on Tuesday, August 1st from 11am-1pm PT at Elizabeth House, 760 Santa Barbara Street, Pasadena, CA 91101.
The U. S. Public Health Service and the CDC recommend that all women of childbearing age consume 0.4 mg of folic acid daily to help prevent major birth defects. Given that it is unlikely that many Elizabeth House residents are getting the amount of folic acid necessary to help prevent these serious birth defects, Dr. Lisa’s Mobile Mom Squad will be delivering 10,000 boxes of Mteryti® and Mteryti® folic 5 prenatal multivitamins. The maker, Duchesnay USA, donated the uniquely formulated prenatal multivitamin supplements.
Dr. Masterson will be on site to discuss the mission of the Mobile Mom Squad and the partnership with Elizabeth House, along with Debbie Unruh, Executive Director of Elizabeth House, who will also be on site and available for interviews.
The prenatal vitamins donated to Elizabeth House will be distributed to facilities across the Greater LA and Orange County area, including the Foothills Pregnancy Resource Center.
As an additional bonus, the Mteryti® mascot “Momma Bear” – designed by the maker of Conrad the Unicorn – will be onsite to hand out teddy bears to children at Elizabeth House, and will be available for photo opportunities.
