    Tackling Maternal Health Equity to Achieve Maternal Health Justice in Illinois


     Virtual Meeting 

    12:00 PM CT - 1:00 PM CT  

    A confirmation is sent immediately upon registration with the virtual link for the day of the event, if you do not receive it, please contact us at iomcstaff@iomc.org. 

    Complimentary - Open to all  

    Post-Election-Persistent and worsening racial and ethnic disparities in severe maternal morbidity and mortality in the US are urgent public health concerns requiring innovative, sustainable solutions. The perinatal period, the time before and after birth, has important implications for a woman’s health and that of her child. Unfortunately, standard perinatal care fails to meet the needs of women from Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, especially with consideration to the Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) and the systemic racism that drive health disparities. 

    By attending this session you will: 

    • Learn the drivers of maternal health inequities
    • Identify ways to advance maternal justice through implementation science
    • Obtain ways to advance maternal justice through clinical care practices
