This week’s New Mexico in Focus is a special one-hour show on teen pregnancy and young parenthood in New Mexico. NMIF brings you the locally produced documentary "Pregnant" by filmmaker Chris Schueler, which highlights the voices of young parents and peer health educators.

Then, host Gene Grant sits down in studio with a panel of local leaders to talk about their work with young parents.

New Mexico PBS’ one-hour public affairs show New Mexico in Focus regularly airs Fridays at 7 p.m. and repeats Sundays at 7 a.m. on Channel 5.1, and Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. on Channel 9.1, except during Pledge Drives.
