Worcester is known for a lot of things.

Its biotechnology achievements are an economic engine.

Medical research at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, some of it led by a Nobel Prize winner, is cutting-edge science.

And entertainment venues, from the DCU Center to bars on Green Street, have provided recreation to generations.

In medical circles, though, Worcester is also known for something else. And that is some of the highest infant mortality rates in Massachusetts, particularly within the Hispanic community.
