About this non-profit:

How can a bacteria you have never heard of be the most common cause of life-threatening infections in newborns, with 15-35% of all women carrying it? Gina Burns turned the tragedy of losing her own baby to this infection into the Group B Strep Association -- a coalition of parents, doctors and medical researchers who work together to stimulate national awareness and treatment options, advocate for routine screening for pregnant women, and lobby for the development of a vaccine.
