Advancing Maternal Health Equity during the Biden Administration

September 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The United States faces a maternal health crisis, with unacceptably high rates of maternal mortality and morbidity. The poorest health outcomes are among Black women and birthing people, and are driving these dreadful statistics. Under the Biden–Harris administration and 117th Congress, this issue has been made a priority. Policy efforts are being made to advance maternal health equity, particularly for Black and Indigenous women and birthing people.

Join us on Tuesday, September 21 from 2:00 to 3:00 PM ET as we review the progress that has been made and discuss the path forward to ensure that we adequately address this crisis, with an intentional focus on Black women and families.
