AMERICA BY THE NUMBERS WITH MARIA HINOJOSA
Air date: Fri., Dec. 16, 8:30 pm
Surviving Year One
The U.S. spends more on healthcare than any other nation, and the biggest portion goes toward pregnancy and childbirth. Despite this, infant mortality rates are still high. To find out more about this critical issue, Maria visits Rochester, New York, where babies are dying at a rate two times higher than the national average and where mothers of color are three times more likely than white mothers to lose their babies before their first birthday. Maria learns about programs that are working to reverse these dramatic disparities.
