Hearing Native Mothers – A Tribal Discussion Session on a Campaign to Support Healthy AI/AN Pregnancies and Maternal Health
January 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
Mothers are cherished, sacred members of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities, and hold distinct roles of nourishing, teaching, and leading their families. For many, pregnancy can be an exciting, joyous time. However, while rare, too many mothers die each year from complications related to pregnancy, and AI/AN people are disproportionately affected. Join the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for a special discussion session on a new campaign segment aimed to support AI/AN healthy pregnancies and postpartum health, based on the existing Hear Her campaign. During the session, CDC speakers will provide a brief overview of the campaign. We will then provide time for Tribal participants to provide input on the proposed campaign themes and materials, and best strategies for reaching Tribal communities.
