What's Your State's Grade?

Today is Prematurity Awareness Day, in case you didn't know! Pretty much every day is "prematurity awareness day" around here, but, still, it's a great time to talk about some things...

The March of Dimes graded each state based on the overall prematurity rate as it compares to the nation's objective goal of 7.6%. My state got an "F". How about yours? As a country, we averaged a "D". Ouch.

Check it out here.

While you're there, consider signing the Petition for Preemies!
