We are honored to be the 2011 March of Dimes grant recipient


The PRN was established in 1989 in Buffalo NY by Dr. Luther Robinson, Pediatric Dysmorphologist at the Children’s Hospital, Buffalo, NY. At that time, the information service was administered by a not for profit, People Inc, based in Buffalo NY. The mission of the organization limited the program’s services to western NY. In 2002, Ferre Institute was approached by the March of Dimes, NYS Perinatal Association, and representatives from the NYS Department of Health to “adopt” this important service to assure that it can serve all of New York State.
