National Women's Health Month

Black women are three times more likely to die from a pregnancy-related cause than White women. Multiple factors contribute to these disparities, such as variation in quality healthcare, underlying chronic conditions, structural racism, and implicit bias. Social determinants of health prevent many people from racial and ethnic minority groups from having fair opportunities for economic, physical, and emotional health (Working Together to Reduce Black Maternal Mortality | Health Equity Features | CDC). In recognition of National Women’s Health Month, our office is partnering with Howard County Medical Center and Sibley Memorial Hospital to host two events addressing maternal health. Both hospitals will screen Toxic: A Black Woman’s Story and a panel discuss with patients and experts on maternal health disparities. There will be an opportunity to attend both in-person and virtually. The in-person option will allow only up to 50 participants, so spaces will fill up quickly. Light refreshments will be provided for in-person participants.  Please click on the link below to register for the in-person and virtual events. Please note that due to copyright laws, we cannot record the event.
