CITY CLUB FORUM: The Case for Equity: Can We Improve the Racial Divide in Infant and Maternal Mortality?

October 23 from 12:00pm - 1:30pm

The reasons for the racial divide in both infant and maternal mortality have been debated by researchers and physicians for decades with considerable resources invested into programs, both in Cleveland and around the country, to combat these trends. But, are they working? And can they work if systemic racism isn't dismantled first?

Join us at the City Club on October 23 from noon to 1:30 p.m. as we discuss this topic.
