Program will try to reduce infant mortality rate in state
A new $10 million campaign will try to reduce Wisconsin's infant mortality rate.
The focus will be in Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha and Beloit, which have the highest death rates for African-American babies in their first years.
In Racine, 23 of every 1,000 black babies die before age 1. That's more than four times the statewide average for white infants.
