November is Prematurity Awareness month!

2018 Premature Birth Report Card

 

The 2018 Premature Birth Report Card was released today. Although our rate increased from 11.2 to 11.4, our grade of D remained. This year’s report card highlights the preterm birth rate since 2007, the grade of the six counties with the highest number of births, and the preterm birth rate broken down by race and ethnicity. The MOD Marketing and Communications Dept. has been working with media partners on getting the report card covered in the news.
