Course description

This course covers a range of topics, all related to maternal mortality rates. Through this course, participants learn about the statistical data behind maternal mortality as well as the role of explicit and implicit bias in the healthcare system. The mission of this course is to provide a deeper understanding of how minority mothers, specifically African American mothers, are experiencing disparities within the healthcare system.
