Nurse-Family Partnership: Part One

By helping  first-time mothers through their pregnancy, and then providing guidance for raising the child through their first two years of life, a program called Nurse-Family Partnership has proven that an engaged mentor can have a significant impact on the later lives of both the child and the mother. In this discussion, we talk with five experts from across the Carolinas who measure the economic benefits and cost avoidance to the social services and healthcare systems by placing more emphasis on maternal and early childhood health. Robin Britt of Guilford Child Development, Ursula Douglas of Care Ring, Rhett Mabry of The Duke Endowment, Dr. Amy Picklesimer of the South Carolina Birth Outcomes Initiative and Joe Waters of the Institute for Child Success join the conversation.
