Breaking Chains and Bridging Gaps, Maternal Health, Public Health and City Planning in the Black Community

Date(s) - Thursday, July 15th, 2021
2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

In collaboration with OMHSAS, PA Care Partnership is providing a webinar series starting on December 3, 2020, and going through the summer of 2021.

Saleemah McNeil and Gabriella Nelson will co-facilitate a workshop in a conversational format, including discussing the intersection of racism and maternal health. They will do an overview of historical implications that impact the treatment of Black bodies and systemically connect those instances to current events and city planning. They will also charge the participants to further think about their role in society and what they can do to become agents of change for the Black birthing community.
