Black Maternal Health Week April 11-17, 2024

Posted in: Webinars and Training

Women in the United States die from giving birth at a higher rate than any other developed nation. Black women are more than three times as likely to die from pregnancy-related complications as white women, regardless of their income or education. This health disparity is why Black Maternal Health Week is a national health observance recognized annually from April 11 to April 17.  

NNLM aims to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health, which is why during Black Maternal Health Week we present opportunities to learn about Black maternal health. This year, we are pleased to highlight two NNLM-funded projects focusing on Black maternal health: 

Attendees will come away with greater awareness of health issues and disparities that disproportionately impact Black women and their families as well as methods professionals are taking to combat them. We hope you will join us!
