This week’s episode of KRCU’s Going Public, we’re talking about those pesky budget cuts to higher education with Southeast Missouri State University President Dr. Carlos Vargas. Then Missouri’s Bootheel is home to some of the highest infant mortality rates in the state. Local hospitals and agencies have been working to turn those numbers around for years.
