Discovery Podcast: Black Maternal Health

Posted in: #CC/Academic List, #Health Interest List, #Health Sciences List, #Public/K-12 List

Black Maternal Health Week is a reminder that so many families experience pain, neglect, and loss during what should be one of the most joyous times of their lives. It’s an urgent call for action. Black women in America are three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white women, regardless of their income or education.

Last year, President Biden made an urgent call to action, proclaiming April 11th through the 17th a time to embrace and focus on black maternal health.

In the latest NNLM Discovery podcast episode, we have Veronica Milliner from the NNLM All of Us Program Center and April Wright from Region 1 to tell us more about the effort that NNLM has made in bringing together a task force specifically aimed at celebrating Black Maternal Health Week.

We want your feedback! Please take our three-minute survey to offer your opinions about the NNLM Discovery podcast.
