There are significant and persistent racial and ethnic disparities in maternal health outcomes in the US and in NYS. In NYS, Black women are 3-4 times more likely to die from causes related to pregnancy than their White counterparts. This webcast focuses on the critical importance of engaging and learning from community voices to help us better understand and address these outcomes. It will feature initiatives that are taking place at the state, community and health systems levels to reduce racial disparities in maternal mortality in NYS.
