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.

The Center for Speech and Hearing at Southeast Missouri State University was recently awarded a grant that provides training and resources to enable the center to provide services to patients suffering from Parkinson's. The program is called "Speak Out!" and Dan Woods spoke with Amy Herren, Clinic Coordinator with Southeast's Center for Speech and Hearing. The program is offered at no cost, thanks to the grant.
