Sacramento State and the March of Dimes have teamed up.

California is one of six states to meet a March of Dimes target of 9.6 percent preterm births by 2020.

In fact, Sacramento's pre-term birth rate is 8.9 percent.

A kick-off event is being held at Sac State today to raise awareness about their partnership.
