Publication Date 10/3-10/7
Summary This five-part series took a closer look at infant mortality in the San Francisco area. Research found that immigrant families face infant mortality at a much higher rate and that pollution and inner-city stress seem to affect a baby's chances for survival. A look at health care also revealed a poor delivery system that doomed some infants, and a neonatal intensive care unit that saves lives daily.
