RATHDRUM – After her daughter was born, Cory Campbell had lots of questions.

Baby Arya was crying. Was she hungry or just fussy?

She was running a fever. Should Campbell take her to the doctor?

Was she eating enough? Gaining the right amount of weight?

Through the Panhandle Health District’s Nurse-Family Partnership program, Campbell has a confidante and mentor to help guide her. Becky Kramer, SR
