Celebrating Black Maternal Health Week


Reception: 4:30PM
Event: 5:30-6:30PM

The month of April is recognized in the United States as National Minority Health Month – a month-long initiative to advance health equity across the country on behalf of all racial and ethnic minorities. Black Maternal Health Week was officially recognized by the White House on April 13th, 2021 and takes place every year from April 11 –17. During the Black Maternal Health Week, organizations around the country aim to uplift the voices of black mothers and black birthing people who often face alarming health risks during the reproductive process. This event aims to discuss the disparities black birthing people face and ways to end high mortality and health risks.

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Kamaria Washington, pelvic health physical therapist, and Samsarah Therese Morgan, doula and executive director and founder of Nia Healing Center for Birth.

This event is hosted by Williamena Kwapo (’23) and Myah Overstreet (’23), and sponsored by the National Association of Black Journalists-UC Berkeley Chapter.
