The Equity Table: Women’s History Month – Equity for Mothers in MCH

March 29, 2022

The Equity Table webinar series explores the racism and inequities communities of color face in the United States, today and historically. Specifically, this series focuses on the persistent disparities seen among Black and Native communities, both in maternal and child health outcomes and beyond. The series features a round-table discussion with subject matter experts who bring their ideas and reflections to the Equity Table. Sessions explore major topics impacting the health and well-being of people of color (e.g., mass incarceration, voting rights). In recognition of Women’s History Month, this session of the Equity Table focused on equity for mothers in MCH.
