GOVERNOR MARKELL'S WEEKLY MESSAGE




Creating Healthier Communities Through Nurse-Family Partnership

August 22, 2014  - As a guest host for the Governor’s weekly message, Division of Public Health Director Dr. Karyl Rattay discusses expansion of the Nurse-Family Partnership in Delaware and its positive impact on the children and families. “The initiative is based on over 37 years of research that has found amazing results: a decrease in pre-term deliveries for women who smoke and nearly a 50% reduction in child abuse and neglect cases,” said Dr. Rattay. “The women are more likely to eat healthy, stop smoking, enroll in school, find work, and achieve better health outcomes for their children."
