The numbers are astounding and the statistics are frightening...in calendar yeat 2013, 158 infants died in Hampton Roads. That's the highest number in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The city of Norfolk alone lost 118 of those babies,  and an astounding 20 of every one thousand live birhs in Norfolk end in the death of the baby within the first year!  Why is the infant mortality rate so high in our region?  On the next Another View we will explore the reasons why and give parents and caregivers information to keep their baby safe.  Our guests include Michelle Clayton, MD, who specializes in child abuse and neglect with CHKD; Meena Tamakloe, BSN, RN, a Maternal and Child Health Nurse with the Hampton Health Department; and Shawn Ware-Avant, Liicensed Professional Counselor and Project Coordinator with Loving Steps Community Health Home Visiting, and the Virginia Healthy Start Initiative with EVMS.  Cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby co-hosts on the next Another View, Friday, October 28 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog.

On this edition of Another View on Health, we examine the meaning of "health" through the lens of health equity.  From your zip code, to the skin you're in, to your water supply, to food deserts, health equity has wide and crosscutting consequences for African American and Latino communities.  Our guest, Dwayne Proctor, PhD, Senior Advisor to the President, Robert Woods Johnson Foundation, will interpret evidence-based research through compelling storytelling and shares with us why "health" is about far more than disease or "aches and pains".  Join hosts Barbara Hamm Lee and cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby for "another view" of health disparities in our country, Friday, September 23 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
