The Low Birth Weight Development Center was founded in 1992 by Dr. Elizabeth Heyne and Roy Heyne, M.D. and has served over 5500 low birth weight children and parents. Through their work with low birth weight infants at Children's Medical Center, they first realized the need for additional resources and support to address the unique issues for these high risk infants and their families.
