Thursday at 8p New Mexico PBS premieres the fourth season of Public Square, a monthly public affairs program where civic dialogue takes center stage.

Tune in tonight for the full discussion. The panel takes up the question of how to improve child well-being in New Mexico. We are 49th in the nation, according to the annual Kids Count Report.

Megan Kamerick moderates the conversation in this segment with panelists Bill Jordan of New Mexico Voices for Children, Allen Sanchez of CHI St. Joseph’s Children, and the medical director of the state’s Family Infant Toddler early intervention program, Dr. Andrew Hsi.
