Description

Wednesday, April 7, 2021 
1 - 2 p.m. Eastern; noon - 1 p.m. Central; 10 - 11 a.m. Pacific  

Maternal deaths in the U.S. are on the rise. And, childbirth is more dangerous for communities of color who are disproportionately impacted by maternal mortality and morbidity. For example, Black and American Indian/Alaska Native women continue to experience more pregnancy related deaths and complications. We can no longer wait to address these disparities. 

On April 7, join the AHA in a dialogue with experts from national and community organizations, and hospitals, to discuss ways we can identify and address inequities in maternal care, empower women of color, and create solutions to improve maternal health equity.

This event will take place in honor of National Minority Health Month and Black Maternal Health Week (April 11-17).
