(White Plains, NY) — Nevada has received a low score in a new report on premature births.
The March of Dimes says the Silver State earned a “D” grade, citing its 13-percent rate of pre-term births.
Nevada also lost points for having a relatively high number of women who smoke, and the number of pregnant women without health insurance.
Six states earned an “A” grade, while three states and Puerto Rico received an “F”.
