AAMC Maternal Health Equity Webinar Series

This April, AAMC Health Equity Research and Policy is celebrating National Minority Health Month with a Maternal Health Equity Webinar Series! The series kicks off during Black Maternal Health Week (April 11-17), an awareness-raising campaign for maternal health and health care disparities.  
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Black, American Indian, and Alaska Native (AI/AN) women are two to three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women—and this disparity increases with age. Pregnancy-related deaths for Black and AI/AN women older than 30 are four to five times higher than for white women.  This series will highlight the unique role of academic medicine in the fight for maternal health justice and feature talks from physicians, community leaders, and researchers who are committed to eliminating these inequities.

Dr. Ndidiamaka Amutah-Onukagha of Tufts University will provide an overview of the factors that exacerbate maternal health disparities for women of color in the United States and provide the historical context that underpins current inequities.
