Welcome to the 5th Annual Black Maternal Health Conference!!
Get ready to be part of an enlightening day of learning and connecting with doulas, researchers, government officials and other experts on Black maternal health. For the past five years the BMHC, led by Dr. Ndidiamaka Amutah-Onukagha, has addressed Black maternal health disparities from different themes. The theme for 2022 is “The Role of Policy in Addressing Black Maternal Health Disparities”. This conference will benefit public health/medical professionals, community organizers, students and anyone invested in supporting Black maternal health.
The 2022 Black Maternal Health Conference Goals include:
Identify policy reforms and expansions to reduce Black maternal mortality rates
Understand the role that bias and systemic racism play in causing adverse maternal health outcomes for Black women in US
Identify ways health professionals (including physicians, midwives, nurses, doulas and others) can use a culturally competent approach to caring for Black women
Facilitate conversations between health professionals/ students on ways to become advocates and improve Black maternal health care experiences
Looking forward to having you join us virtually on Friday, April 8th!
