The Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA) is excited to host the 2nd Black Maternal Health Conference and Training Institute™ (BMHC21)
June 11-13, 2021
To date, discussions about black maternal health have been carved into existing reproductive, maternal, and public health conferences where there is little space for meaningful dialogue and limited framing on health equity and reproductive justice. BMMA has created that space in the Black Maternal Health Conference and Training Institute™ where all trainings, discussions, and activities focus on the lived experiences, realities, and voices of Black Mamas.
BMHC will help to:
- Build capacity of Black leaders in maternal health to shape programs, policies, and care and engage in evidence-based advocacy;
- Disseminate best practices to address critical issues in black maternal health from different sectors including research, care, policy, and culture; and
- Grow a network of stakeholders committed to improving black maternal health.
If you missed out on the conference in 2018, this is your chance to take part in this important national forum dedicated to black maternal health and the disparities that face Black women.
