TH* FACTS . TEXAS, WCO., DECEMBER 1, "~" " " "' T mflftCH of Dimes Why be educated about birth defects? MOD FACTS, sponsored by the Brazoria County Chapter of the National Foundation — March of Dimes, provides an information center Tor the citizens of Brazoria County. Question: Why are the young people of today concerned about birth defects? Answer: Because two outstanding qualities of today's young people are caring and knowing. They care about the world they live in and want to know about that world and what it holds for them. As the parents of tomorrow they are concerned about the one-fourth million babies born each year with birth defects. Question: What is being done to educate young people about birth defects? Answer: Educational programs are being conducted in county schools by your March of Dimes Chapter. For example, family living classes at Angleion High School are learning about genetic counseling. Horaemaking classes at Sweeny, Pearland and Columbia High Schools are learning that what they eat, smoke, drink, or consume in chemical form can affect the children they will have in the future. Such programs and films are available to any school requesting them and your March of Dimes Chapter is striving to . encourage such programs. Question: Are there other educational opportunities for young people? Answer: Yes. Your March of Dimes Chapter supports any such effort. Information has been provided for the health careers programs of the Brazosport school system. Scholarships are awarded to a second-year student enrolled in the nursing programs at both Alvin and Brazosport Junior Colleges. On December 6 representatives from each of our county high schools will take part in a March of Dimes-sponsored Youth Conference to be held in Beaumont. ' •>!»: Why are such efi o important? Answer: Because the number of babies born to Texas r others 19 and under is increasing at a rate five times that of all Texas births, and because more Texas high school dropouts quit school because of marriage, pregnancy or both, than for any other reason. Forty per cent of Texas mothers and one-third of Texas fathers with .children under S have not finished jhigh school. One out of three pregna'nt and-or nursing teenage mothers in the Texas Nutrition Survey ate less than half the recommended dietary allowance of calories, calcium, iron and Vitamin A. And because Brazoria 'County has an infant mortality rate higher than the national average, your March of Dimes Chapter 'encourages those interested in a career in the health fields. We hope that in the future we will have enough well-educated professionals to deliver better health care to all citizens of Brazoria County, particularly the expectant mother.
