Eliminating Racial Disparities in Maternal Morbidity

March 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Aftershock screening with Keynote by Dr. Janet Seabrook

The film Aftershock documents two Black fathers’ fight for maternal health care reform when their partners die unnecessarily due to childbirth complications. The men galvanize activists, birth workers, and physicians to reckon with one of the most pressing crises of our time. After the screening, keynote speaker Dr. Janet Seabrook, CEO of Community HealthNet Health Care Centers, will address the causes of BIPOC women’s disproportionately high rates of maternal morbidity and explain why Indiana’s rates are third worst in the US (keynote broadcast via zoom). Her focus will be on systemic changes alleviating the problem.
