Texas Health Journal: The Maternal and Infant Health Issue

Texas Health Journal: The Maternal and Infant Health Issue

In this issue of Texas Health Journal, we go from San Antonio, where doctors are simulating obstetric emergencies to prepare for real ones, to Austin, where we are helping to redesign the prenatal care system for underserved mothers, to the Rio Grande Valley, where we are working to help women control when they get pregnant. In Dallas and Galveston our researchers are trying to solve the mystery of preterm birth. In Houston, our specialists are working to preserve fertility in patients undergoing harsh treatments for cancer.
