The Green – February 5, 2021

Listen to this edition of The Green or individual segments below:

Healthcare payers and providers in First State recently launched a regional partnership to find out if there is a link between the COVID-19 pandemic and a decrease in preterm births.

A $300,000 grant from Highmark Delaware and other health care payers is funding research at Nemours Children’s Health System, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Yale and Northwestern Universities.

Delaware Public Media’s Nick Ciolino recently spoke with Nemours neonatologist Dr. Jay Greenspan about the collaboration.

Last spring, New Castle County started working with the start-up Biobot Analytics to analyze its sewer water for evidence of COVID-19.

But late last year, the county transitioned that analysis to the University of Delaware’s Center for Environmental and Wastewater-based Epidemiological Research (CEWER), which is also examining  samples from the UD campus.

Delaware Public Media’s Sophia Schmidt talks with UD Professor of microbial food safety and CEWER director Kali Kniel about this work.

Vancouver-based TidalWave Comics has profiled politicians in comic book form for over a decade – and now, it’s featuring President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in its “Political Power” series.

Michael Frizell wrote both and in this week’s Arts Playlist chats with Delaware Public Media’s Kelli Steele about these comic books.

From time to time on The Green, we like to highlight work from student journalists at both the high school and college level.
