Despite efforts to improve maternal and children’s health care, preterm birth rates in Michigan have risen five years in a row, with Detroit ranking nearly at the bottom when compared to the other 100 largest cities in the U.S. In order to address the high rates of infant mortality in the city alongside other largescale health disparities, Brad Garrison, a pharmacist and pastor, founded the Luke Clinic with his wife, Sherie, a high-risk labor and delivery nurse at Michigan Medicine. The clinic provides free prenatal, postpartum and infant care (through one year of life) to any family in the Detroit metro area.
