How do you do a report on preterm deliveries and not talk to ANY of the people that are getting it right or to any of the doctors that deal with the complexities of taking care of pregnant women. Does Cheryl Clark expect us to believe that the patient population at UCLA Reagan is the same as the one at Riverside Community? Why only tell half of the story and bend it to be half true - and half untrue. Cheryl Clark shows here that she has no grasp of the topic. Based on this reading, i doubt that she has a grasp of ANYTHING in health care. Time to hang it up, Cheryl.
