Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS)
Share your story!
What is PRAMS?
PRAMS is a joint research project between the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). ISDH has partnered with Kent State University in Kent, OH for assistance with data collection efforts. Our purpose is to find out why some babies are born healthy and others are not. We need your help to find out why.
How can I tell my story to PRAMS?
Names are selected by chance, like a lottery, from the state birth certificate registry. Only a small number of women will be chosen to participate in the study. When we receive your completed survey, we will send you a gift card as a token of our appreciation.
Will my answers be kept private?
Yes – all answers are kept completely private and will be grouped together to give us information on Indiana mothers of new babies. There will not be any names shared.
Is it really important that I answer these questions?
Yes! With the information you give us, we may be able to improve health care for women and children in Indiana. We need to know what went right, as well as what went wrong during your pregnancy. Your help is vital to the success of our program.
