Mayor Muriel Bowser hosts the District of Columbia’s First Maternal and Infant Health Summit.
Mayor Bowser brings together a vibrant list of speakers and leaders to address a community audience and develop an agenda that tackles the disproportionally high rates of maternal mortality experienced by people of color – in both Washington, DC and across the nation. Leading the conversations for the day-long convening: Valerie Jarrett, Cathy Hughes, Mayors Karen Freeman-Wilson (Gary, IN), Catherine Pugh (Baltimore, MD), Lovely A. Warren (Rochester, NY), Karen Weaver (Flint, MI), among others.
The summit is an opportunity for elected officials, health experts, and DC residents to have a focused conversation regarding perinatal health and racial disparities in birth outcomes.
The event features panel discussions and a luncheon to articulate and share the best infant and maternal health practices. To learn more about Mayor Bowser’s Maternal and Infant Health Summit, visit: https://dcmaternalhealth.com
