L.A. Officials Balk at Black Infant Health Program Changes
Los Angeles County officials say that changes implemented by the state to the Black Infant Health Program are not based on evidence and will reduce the number of women who have access to the program's services. More than one-third of black infants in the state are born in Los Angeles County. The county is required to adopt the new changes by July 1 or lose $1.1 million in federal funding for the program.
