Maternal health refers to the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the
postnatal period. It affects every single woman, regardless of race or ethnicity. Yet there are higher childbirth complications rates for black and Hispanic women regardless of age - why is that? Dr. Gina Cuyler, vice president of health equity and community investments at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield discusses these health disparities in this episode of the Community Check-In. There is so much that can be done, on an individual level, to help reduce these maternal health disparities and make sure every woman has culturally sensitive access to the care that they need and deserve.

The Piketon Massacre

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
