Ohio Launches Baby Box Program

What if Ohio could reduce the number of infant deaths -- with the help of a cardboard box? That's the goal of the Babies Need Boxes program. Ohio is just the second state to take on the collaborative effort, as an endeavor to curb the number of sleep-related infant deaths.

University Hospitals is now one of a handful of Ohio health centers partnering in the effort. Celina Cunanan, director of midwifery services at University Hospitals, explains how the program works.
