(KSL News) The Salt Lake County Health Department and County Mayor Peter Corroon announced a new program today to bring health care to first-time mothers.
"It's a free and voluntary prevention program providing nurse home visitations to low-income, first-time mothers, their infants and their families," Corroon said.
The "Nurse-Family Partnership" program is the first of its kind in Utah. Four nurses are already working in the program, visiting women in their homes and providing heath care and education.
More than 30 families have enrolled, and organizers hope to increase that to about 100 within the first year.
