Reducing Infant Mortality through Housing Assistance

Healthy Beginnings

In this episode of the Doorsteps podcast, Dr. Cody Price is joined by CelebrateOne's Maureen Stapleton and Priyam Khan to discuss the Healthy Beginnings at Home program - a housing stabilization pilot program for pregnant women in Columbus, OH, which found that "women who received housing assistance experienced better birth outcomes than those that did not receive this assistance." We also discuss COVID-19 impacts, racial disparities in pregnancy, and Healthy Beginnings at Home 2.0.
