In Fresno County, the preterm birth rate is 12% in a 70% Black or Hispanic zipcode while in a historically white zipcode area where over 66% of it’s residents are white, the preterm birth rate is only 7% in a report published by UC Berkley’s Graduate School of Journalism. And it’s not just a “Fresno” thing, in this video I touch on the affect that zipcodes have on premature birth.
