Viewpoints: Nurse visits at home can pay big dividends
Sacramento Bee

It is well known that in the United States, women and children in low-income families have significantly higher death rates than women and children of affluent families. However, new research shows that we have a well-established and evidenced-based program that can reduce those higher death rates. A recent study, published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics by David Olds, found that the nurse-family partnership – a voluntary nurse home-visiting program for young first-time moms and their babies – reduces preventable death among that group.
