Access in Crisis: Maternal Health Awareness Day Webinar

January 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

In observance of Maternal Health Awareness Day, ACOG will host a live webinar featuring people who are navigating and working to mitigate the maternal and reproductive health care access crisis in the United States. In this one-hour webinar, ACOG members on the front lines of the crisis will shed light on ongoing challenges facing those seeking and providing maternal and reproductive health care. Experts in maternal health will speak on navigating workforce shortages, the realities of practicing in rural or historically underserved areas, and work being done to understand the maternal mortality crisis and advocate for solutions. You’ll also hear firsthand accounts from physicians who have seen their patients denied care that they need or had to leave a state in which abortion care became criminalized. We will also be joined by a patient who was unable to obtain an abortion in her home state when she received a heartbreaking diagnosis during her pregnancy.
