Black Maternal Health Conference
The Black Maternal Health Conference is the nation’s largest convening focused on global Black maternal health outcomes, with more than 3200 attendees. Each year, the Conference is recognized as the kick-off to Black Maternal Health Week, typically observed on April 11 –17.
The goal of the Annual Conference is to:
- Identify how health professionals can improve the Black maternal health experience.
- Understand the role that bias and systemic racism play in causing adverse maternal health outcomes for Black birthing people in the U.S.
- Facilitate conversations between health professionals and the community at large on ways to become advocates and improve Black maternal healthcare.
