  • Increase health equity through information about disparities for Black families through panel presentations from three leading researchers.
  • Address environmental determinants of health for Black families and infants.
  • Since Black Maternal Health is not frequently discussed or explored, many people only hear dire outcomes. Through this programming, we can confront health misinformation regarding participants' understanding of what they are empowered to do to improve their outcomes and make more informed decisions about their health.
