Racism is the root cause of health disparities and the reason that minorities and the poor are disproportionately suffering the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this interactive webinar dedicated to the memory of George Floyd we will explore how COVID-19 is affecting the care of minority women and their infants and discuss steps that perinatal and newborn care teams can take to achieve health equity for the mothers, infants, and families we serve.
VON Potentially Better Practices for Follow Through will provide the foundation for our dialogue. Please download and review the change ideas and associated Pediatrics paper ahead of the virtual discussion.
