NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — More than 800 medically fragile newborns are cared for each year by an organization launched in Tennessee more than a decade ago with the help of former Titan offensive tackle Fred Miller.
Nurses for Newborns of Tennessee conducts more than 4400 home visits a year to follow the growth of at-risk babies to the age of 2.
Executive director Vicki Beaver says her nurses are ready to take a phone call from moms in need of assistance 24 hours a day.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a group of Catholic nonprofits in Nashville that challenged a provision of the new federal health care law.
An attorney for the nonprofits said in court earlier this month that the agencies have a religious objection to providing health care coverage for their employees that includes services like contraception and sterilization.
He asked U.S. District Judge Todd Campbell to issue an injunction, preventing the government from enforcing the so-called contraceptive mandate.
