Latest Issue Brief: Infant Mortality
A child’s first year of life is the most fragile. In 2012, 556 Hoosier children died prior to their first birthday. That is more than 3 in 400 infants or one every 16 hours. Learn more about infant mortality in IYI’s latest Issue Brief, “Babies at Risk: Overcoming an Unhealthy Start.”
Feeding the World
A profession in agriculture may not have been your student’s first career choice, but in a challenging job market, he or she might want to reconsider. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has ranked the Hoosier State among the nation’s top five producing states for everything from chickens to eggs, corn to popcorn and tomatoes to cantaloupe. With that kind of national production, job security is implied, and the agriculture industry has a career opportunity for everyone. Learn about how your student could marry their passion for marketing, computer technology or science with this booming industry in IYI’s Monthly Column for November by IYI’s President and CEO, Bill Stanczykiewicz.
