Wayside Recovery Center is hosting a new ECHO series focused on maternal and infant health disparities -- with support from the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS). This session will be led by Karen A. Scott, MD, MPH, FACOG.
The disparity data in Black maternal mortality and morbidity are dismal. There are many opportunities for interventions to prevent maternal deaths and improve outcomes and experiences that are hampered by obstetric racism. For hospital and health systems to prevent deaths, there is a need for greater community-based partnerships. This session will highlight first-of-its-kind work led by Black women community leaders and scholars to illuminate the voices, feelings and experiences of seeking care and support while Black and pregnant during the pandemic. A survey developed by Dr. Karen A. Scott focused on more than 800 Black mothers across 348 hospitals in 34 states and Washington, D.C. with a goal of transforming the culture of obstetric care by establishing community-driven benchmarks for advancing equity.
