Strategies to Improve Maternal Health 
Thursday, May 5, 2022, at 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

This presentation will provide valuable information about the maternal mortality crisis in America. Black mothers are 3-4 times more likely to die during childbirth compared to their White counterparts and many of these deaths are preventable. There are many reasons for this alarming disparity including; systemic barriers, social determinants of health, and provider biases. We will discuss why these issues continue to persist and more importantly what can be done to reverse the trend of negative birth outcomes experienced by Black mothers. Examples of topics that will be addressed include; eliminating systemic barriers that entrench bias and inequalities, creating public health initiatives to improve care, changing the healthcare systems through legislation and training, and steps WIC staff and partners can take to support Black mothers during and after their pregnancy. If you’re keen on being a part of the conversation about black maternal health and black women’s health in general, you’ll likely enjoy this presentation.
