Disparities in Maternal Health: Connecting Community Advocacy to Clinical Practice
Racial inequities in maternal mortality are staggering, with Black women experiencing mortality rates more than three times that of White women, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In Massachusetts, Black women are twice as likely to die from pregnancy or childbirth-related complications. These inequities, the result of systemic racism in health care, are unacceptable. Massachusetts passed legislation filed by State Representative Liz Miranda of Boston establishing a commission to make policy recommendations aimed at eliminating racial inequities in maternal health.

Join the Massachusetts Medical Society, the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association, and the American College of Healthcare Executives Massachusetts Chapter to learn more about the commission’s recommendations to redress racial disparities and promote equity in maternal health outcomes, including how to connect these policies into clinical practice. This event is also a part of the Medical Society’s annual John Figgis Jewett Lectureship on maternal health.
