During Black Maternal Health week, EPI's Dara Mendez and Rep. Morgan Cephas will speak as part of the Adagio Health Better Outcomes Speaker Series, which furthers engagement and advocacy around issues that have taken on new importance during the COVID-19 pandemic: food insecurity, Black maternal health, behavioral health, and racial health disparities.
