Structural Racism and Maternal Health: Working Toward Birth Equity

EPI's Dara Mendez, interim director of the Center for Health Equity, will join Lauren Underwood, congresswoman (IL-14) for a discussion with Katy Backes Kozhimannil of the University of Minnesota, recipient of the 2020 Heinz Award for Public Policy. 

Giving birth should not be a matter of life or death in this country; yet for many it is. 

Black, Indigenous and other people of color in the United States die during and after childbirth at substantially higher rates than white people. 

Join us for a discussion on the profound maternal health inequities that currently exist, and solutions that can save lives of mothers and babies.
