The Foundation Women’s Board is moving forward with faith towards A Toast to East Texas 2021, and plan to begin hosting parties in mid-April 2021. Announcing our CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Foundation Women’s Board 2021 fundraising initiative! All funds raised through A Toast to East Texas 2021 will be designated for The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Program Campaign.

Many women diagnosed with a high-risk pregnancy and possible “complications” are not able to make the expensive commitment to travel back and forth to Dallas for observation and treatment. To assist this underserved population, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic launched the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Program, providing comprehensive care in Tyler for women at high risk for complications threatening the health of the mother and/or baby. Thousands of women have been seen in the clinic since it opened September 2019, which brings together a team of specialists who develop a continuum of care plan for each patient. This program is essential!
