Do Baltimore Teens Face Worse Conditions Than Their Nigerian Counterparts?

Youth-JailJanuary 27, 2015 – Segment 2

Do poor teens in Baltimore face worse conditions than their counterparts in Nigeria, as a recent study suggests? We look at the study, published in December’s Journal of Adolescent Health, with: Dr. Kristin Mmari, Assistant Professor in the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; Dr. Lawrence Brown, public health consultant and Assistant Professor of Public Health in the School of Community Health and Policy at Morgan State University; and Dr. Roni Ellington, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Morgan State University.
