    Parkland recently completed their latest assessment, and one of the major issues, not only in North Texas, but this extends nationwide, is Maternal Mortality (new mothers who die with a year of childbirth).
    Jessica Hernandes and Marjorie Quint-Bouzid join us from Parkland and Dr. Kamala Tamarisa from Medical City Heart Hospital join us for a look at what some of the greatest needs in Dallas County are, what programs have been implemented to address them, and how we can strive toward improving the numbers of maternal mortality.
    In the second half of the show, a captivating conversation with Dr. Jeffrey Kahn, Chief of Infectious Diseases at Children's Health. Dr. Kahn talks about the Covid-19 vaccines (both children and adults), childhood immunizations, and other relevant topics affecting our kid's health, such as bullying, vaping and childhood obesity.
