DEI Lecture Series: Unveiling Maternal Morbidity and Mortality in the United States: Disparities and Challenges in Women's Health
DEI Lecture Series
Our quarterly DEI Lecture Series is held in partnership with the Institute of Common Power.
This presentation will explore maternal morbidity and mortality in the United States including health complications and adverse outcomes that can occur during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum. Poor maternal health outcomes disproportionately affect Black and Indigenous women and women of color, highlighting a stark and deeply rooted problem in our healthcare system.
