Baby boxinettes have been introduced in our listening area to promote safe sleep and reduce infant mortality. For “Going Public,” Southeast Missouri State University’s director of Health Communication and KRCU's “To Your Health” host Brooke Hildebrand Clubbs sat down with Dr. Alan Barnette, a neonatologist at Saint Francis Medical Center, and Morgan Nesselrodt, project coordinator for the "First Birthday" Project, to discuss why the boxinette program was developed and where it is headed.
