March of Dimes Gives State an F for Children’s Health

The state of Arkansas has received an F on a report card concerning maternal and children’s health compiled by the March of Dimes.

This is the first time since 2010 that the state has received such a low grade.

Only three states in America have higher rates of premature births.

It is estimated that the average premature birth in the state costs $59,000 which includes medical care for the child and mother, education services and lost productivity.
