It Takes a Village: Working Together to Reduce Racial Inequities in Maternal Morbidity and Mortality

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Maternal morbidity and mortality rates are unacceptably high in the United States (US). In fact, Black women are two to three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women, prompting the US Department of Health and Human Services to state that maternal deaths are a public health crisis. What can you do to address these inequities in maternal health? Two experts in this field will discuss the latest data on maternal deaths and frame practical and supportive strategies that providers can implement.
