NNLM AoU Community Award: Community Unconference: Let’s Talk About Black Maternal Health

Our project aims to increase awareness, and to educate the community by amplifying the voices of community members around the health disparities and inequities related to Black maternal health

The project activities are three community events: 1) a webinar to feature the ENAHEC and the All of US Program, 2) an in-person screening of a documentary about Black maternal health that will feature resources from the All of Us program and NLM, and 3) an in-person Community Unconference where attendees will have the opportunity to participate in community proposed sessions about Black maternal health. The event will also feature a resource table with information on the All of Us Program, NLM resources: Lactmed and Medlineplus, and local maternal health programs and services.

We will target doulas, midwives, parents, birthing people, pregnant people, community health workers, community advocates as event attendees and speakers.
