Connections: Nurse-Family Partnerships; The Power of Shakespeare


In our second hour, a new study finds that nurse-family partnerships can save lives of both mothers and their first-born children living in the roughest parts of cities. We'll explore how with Dawn Borgeest, Sr. Vice President of United Way of Greater Rochester and Dr. Harriet Kitzman from University of Rochester Medical Center.

Then we ask: is Shakespeare still relevant? Well, of course he is. And that's largely thanks to the passionate work of performers like Bill Alden, an actor who is a veteran of the stage. He brings the power of Shakespeare to our studio (and he might have his own conspiracy theories as to the nature of the bard).
