"So you have identical boys, we have fraternal boys, we have a boy and a girl and it was just amazing to have that many twins in one space," exclaimed Noelene Smith with The Baby Institute.

Albany Med partnered with The Baby Institute in 2016 to help at-risk children succeed in school. The program serves parents and children in Arbor Hill, West Hill and the South End.
