Cleveland’s premature birth rate third worst in nation, March of Dimes report says
The Plain Dealer: Brian Mercer, professor of reproductive biology, and Michele Walsh, professor of pediatrics, discussed Cleveland’s premature birth rates, which recently received an “F” grade from March of Dimes. The region is starting to make progress, they noted, but still has much room for improvement. In 2013, March of Dimes awarded CWRU and other institutions $10 million to create a prematurity research center.
