Due to the coronavirus, many events have been canceled or postponed, and our listings may not reflect those changes. Please check with organizers before making plans.
On Tuesday, Nov. 17 from 12-1 p.m. CT, March of Dimes will host “It Starts With Mom Live Texas: Closing the Health Equity Gap,” to shed light on topics that moms and moms-to-be find the most pressing today.
Each and every day in the U.S., two women die due to complications from pregnancy and childbirth, and two babies die every hour. Black women are three times more likely to die from pregnancy related causes than White women. Black babies are twice as likely to die before their first birthday. And it’s not their fault.
Learn the facts about the health disparities facing Black mothers and babies and what it will take to change the statistics. Hear honest conversations with experts on how women can be their own best advocate in healthcare. Join us to hear from, Stacey D. Stewart, President and CEO, March of Dimes; Stephanie Childs, Vice President, Global Government Relations, Kimberly-Clark Corporation; Regina Jones, Chief Legal Officer, Baker Hughes; Sky Houston, On-air Personality, Radio One.
