What is PRAMS?

Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) is a project between the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The purpose is to find out why some babies are born healthy and others are not. To gather this information, mothers answer questions about their health and life around the time of their pregnancy.

Your answers and participation in the project will help us learn more about ways to improve the health of both mothers and babies in Kansas.
