Theion

I absolutely love one key question.. If women are screened we have an opportunity to intervene earlier.
Gloria Davis
01:08:06
for the "Other risks addressed in primary care slide" are those women in general or black women?
Olga Vigdorchik
01:08:17
Theion - yes, especially for our high-risk populations, like your DMH clinic clients
Cordelia Hanna
01:08:38
all women
Gloria Davis

Thanks, Melissa!

My pleasure :-)
Melissa Franklin
01:14:38
We will also post on the initiative website: blackinfantsandfamilies.org
Cordelia Hanna
01:15:15
I think it'd be great for Doulas to utlize this.
Brandi Sims
01:15:37
great idea cordelia, it could be incorprated into training
Melissa Franklin
01:16:04
Love that, Cordelia!
Cordelia Hanna
01:16:12
Yes, Brandi. Just as I was thinking, And into Doula Programs.
Melissa Franklin
01:17:38
Thank you, Dr. Allen, for the great overview of One Key Question (OKQ)!
Cordelia Hanna
01:20:47
Is this recording going to be available to share and use? This would be great to share in father's support groups. We are doing a Father's Support Group in the Health Net Community Doula Program.
Adjoa
01:21:28
Yay LeHenry!!!!
Melissa Franklin
01:22:01
So excellent, LeHenry! Thank you!
Theion
01:22:02
Great presentation LeHenry
Adjoa
01:22:04
Yes agreement for Doulas - Cordelia
Cordelia Hanna
01:23:27
Would love LeHenry to come speak at the Father's Support Group we are doing at the Health Net Community Doula Program.
Felica
01:23:49
thank you for the previous presentation Dr. Loretta jones publised an article in Ethinicty and Disease winter 2010 titled "where is the "F" in MCH Father involvement in the the African American families I can have my assistant send it out if you are interested
Adjoa
01:24:12
As well great job Raena on Centering - Group Programs that have been routinely used in our communities of sisterhood and bonding to support each other during pregnancy and beyond---that is part of the Village concept
Cordelia Hanna
01:25:00
Yes please send that article to us by Loretta Jones on fathers
Leticia Sanchez
01:25:04
Programs for fatherhood are important however when policy is not developed to include the role of fathers many providers of services can miss engaging father. What policies can be insituted to be father-friendly/welcoming?
Helen
01:25:13
Felica, please send that excellent resource to Melissa and Helen so we can share with group!
Felica
01:25:35
I will have Andrea Jones send it out right away
Melissa Franklin
01:25:41
Excellent, point, Leticia, henceforth the importance of our collective work to address the issue at all angles.
AHarville
01:25:51
Wondering how much of the funding for home visitation also includes specific marketing/employment of Black women to provide the services? Cultural congruence (aka, home visitors who LOOK like the people they are visiting) is important to the enrollment and retaining of Black women, if they are the target of this piece. "Cultural compentence" is not enough.
Adjoa
01:26:03
Dr. Allen Great job and presentation on the details of OKQ
Arissa Palmer
01:26:36
Totally agree, Asaiah! Excellent point!
Melissa Franklin
01:26:42
Helen, you read my mind. YES! Ms. Felica please and anything else. We'd post on our site and credit HAAF.
Felica
01:27:41
how many of these homevisitng programs involve fathers also I'm interested in knowing how nutrition is incoorperated
Cordelia Hanna
01:28:24
Also, Home Visiting also should include Doula programs. Doulas do home visiting. In the Health Net Community Doula Program they are doing 3 prenatal and 3 postpartum visits in woman's home.
Adjoa
01:29:08
In agreement AHarville, this has been the makeup I know for certain of previous programs such as the Black Infant Health Program-- staff that are AA/Black, with lived experience, knowledge and skill set, as well appropriate educational training to continue to provide great and effective program/services to the Black community
lynn kersey
01:30:00
this is a great idea- especially with Medi-Cal extending for those moms who would be losing it postparum...
Helen
01:31:02
Lynn, can you clarify which point is a great idea? Just so we accurately capture your feedback :) Thank you!
AHarville
01:31:59
Thanks Adjoa. Provisions are almost always given for language preference, and rightfully so. However if job descriptions require a second language be spoken for example, that eliminates a large subset of potentially well qualified applicants and also does not address the issue for Black women
Melissa Franklin
01:33:00
Loving this chat box. Thought partnership, great questions, innovative ideas.
Melissa Franklin
01:33:33
Linda, great overview of such a big topic. Thank you!
lsolomon
01:34:04
It is critical to have internal policies addressing whether or not staff are engaging/including fathers? It is also imperative that staff understand the positive impact of fathers which will allow staff to be more inclusive of fathers/father-friendly organically.
Cordelia Hanna
01:34:14
A Harville, I agree. Most of these jobs eliminate candidates who are other ethnicites than Latino and Spanish speaking. This eliminates alot of African-American candidates. Maybe including other languages on job descriptions besides Spanish. Such as African dilects and languages.
Gwendolyn
01:35:29
The PEI_RSI Budget Template reveals that CDPH data sets account for Long Beach specifically. Q1) Is the City of Long Beach encouraged to apply for funding given the percentages shown? Q2) If not considered as an region for implementation, how does the County plan to account for Long Beach data percentages per the sets of data listed by CDPH?
AHarville
01:37:38
@ Coredlia, yes. Black women are often excluded based on this criteria. If, in the context of this conversation we are specifically speaking about Black women as clients, no additional language requirements are necessary. But qualified candidates should be sought out to meet this need. Colleges/universities should know about home visiting as an option.
Sonya Young Aadam
01:39:00
Presentations have been excellent... so important to experience all of these areas/angles/ opportunities together in one sitting. This would be great content for an upcoming conference.
Cordelia Hanna
01:39:45
Actually the Health Net Community Doula Program, which is focused on African-American women, is providing doula support in all SPAs in LA County.
Cordelia Hanna
01:40:04
Not just SPA 1
LB Forward
01:40:58
Hello Brandi, building off of Gwendolyn’s point. How can Best Start communities support with the doula support model. Focusing on your point of that community infrastructure building?
AHarville
01:41:04
I noticed that within the areas listed as well, lactation care/support does not seem to be as important of a factor. Breastfeeding education and support is IMPERATIVE to the health of infants AND mothers, especially to preterm infants. Black infants are more routinely givenformula in the NICU which contributes to poor outcomes. Black women are routinely NOT given breastfeeding support that is imperative to their health and well being. Lactation needs to be included
Adjoa
01:41:15
Great points AHarville as I have seen the success of organizations like Black Infant Health contracted agencies, California Black Women's Health Project, Black Women for Wellness, Prototypes, Mission City Community Network and more who selected very qualified AA/Black women and men who were very affected in providing the necessary program/services and affecting the rates for the BIH Program
TERRIEANNE
01:43:09
very informative
Diamond

To get added to the SLA/SB AAIMM CAT list please email Jeannette Johnson- Jjohnson8@dhs.lacounty.gov
Raena G.
01:43:30
I left out much of the clinical portion and that is were most of your questiona come from, my apologies. I will send a follow up.
Raena G.
01:43:38
Betsy Jacobs- Dr's or Midwives run the group prenatal visits. They gives exams and medical information each times
Adjoa
01:43:44
AHarville --- I meant bringing about effective interventions in improving the outcome of infant mortality rates in L.A. County
Raena G.
01:44:03
A Harville The medical exam portion is private
Diamond
01:44:04
Meeting Date: September 5th 9:30am-12:00pm Location TBD
Mashariki Kudumu
01:44:05
Regarding Lynn's comment on postpartum coverage for mental health services: budget trailer bill SB 104 extends postpartum care coverage from 60 days post birth to one-year for women in Medi-Cal who are diagnosed with a mental health disorder.
Olga Vigdorchik
01:44:08
please note for SPA 1/AV region - Cristina's correct email is CHerman@dhs.lacounty.gov
Brandi Sims
01:44:15
Best Start has an important role to play, particularly in the area of community awareness and workforce development. AAIMM can also be identified as a community agenda priority, and partnerships can collaborate to support these efforts through a community identified project
Sonya Young Aadam
01:44:37
Also, special thanks to those continuing to raise the race card esp as it relates to allocation of the $127m in home visiting program, further engaging Doulas, and interventions provided by DMH. No doubt that LAC & First 5 offer some quality interventions, but the are questions about targeting AAs across the county.
Adjoa
01:44:51
Also, we will be providing an update/flyer for the SLA/SB meeting to occur on 9//5/19 with our location---there will be plenty of accessible parking
Cristina Herman
01:44:57
Thank you Olga
TERRIEANNE
01:45:02
having the Dulas available in the AV is amazing especially since there is a shortage of OB’s out here.
Cordelia Hanna
01:45:03
The Association for Wholistic Maternal Newborn Health provides training and certification as Perinatal Support Specialists. This training is taught by a multicultural team including Black trainers. The course covers more than doula skills, It addresses the impact of historical trauma and racism on African American women and social determinants of perinatal health.
Cristina Herman
01:45:19
Great presentation!
Sonya Young Aadam
01:45:44
Excited to be part of this promising opportunity to save our babies, mamas & families.
