Black Women’s Health Workshop
With the stories of celebrities like Serena Williams and Beyonce and their near fatal childbirths, it is more important than ever to take charge of our healthcare as black women. According to the CDC's Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System, black women are three to four times as likely to be at risk of pregnancy-related deaths as white women.
During this workshop we will not only discuss reproductive health in black women but also examine the intersection of racism and sexism and how they contribute to negative health outcomes for black women. We will have a panel of speakers from the Boston area who will provide us with their medical/clinical expertise. Our goal is for you to leave knowing how to advocate for yourself and your family in clinical settings!
