This event is part of the Research-in-Progress Webinar Series, which enables investigators whose awards are in-process or completed to share their work and disseminate findings rapidly, and to identify others with related research interests.
This webinar will discuss the Los Angeles Maternity Assessment Management Access and Service (MAMA) program, an innovative, multi-sector initiative that seeks to address the constellation of social factors that contribute to adverse maternal and infant outcomes, including housing instability, food insecurity, untreated mental health conditions, domestic violence, and substance abuse. A research team led by Los Angeles County will test the effectiveness of the program’s four major components: (1) a health home care management model, (2) peer and community support, (3) flexible funding for non-medical services, and (4) an advanced health information technology platform.
