WGTE Town Hall: Low Birth Weight Crisis -

Bill Harris hosts this important Town Hall, call-in event, originally broadcast on Thursday, November 4th at 8:00 p.m. The program explores how in Lucas County there are huge disparities in birth weight outcomes based on where a mother lives. Suburban newborn weights are within healthy ranges; however mothers in Toledo's inner-city neighborhoods have increased rates of low birth weight births. These babies are at higher risk for physical and developmental problems.
