Risk Factor
A scene from the film Risk Factor by Columbus-filmmaker Barento Taha. The film takes a look at the Black infant mortality crisis in Ohio.

Black babies in Ohio died before their first birthday at a rate three times that of white infants in 2019.

A Columbus physician-in-training-turned-filmmaker explores the root causes of this disparity in his film, titled “Risk Factor.”

Today on Wellness Wednesday on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we discuss the Black infant mortality crisis in Ohio.
