Maternal Health Awareness Day Webinar

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

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.

Speakers:

  • ACOG President Verda J. Hicks, MD, FACO, Kansas
  • Margaret Chou, MD, FACOG, Delaware
  • Charlene Collier, MD, MPH, MHS, FACOG, Mississippi
  • Kylie Cooper, MD, FACOG, Minnesota
  • Katherine Glaser, MD, FACOG, Arizona
  • Todd Ivey, MD, FACOG, Texas
  • Allie Phillips, Tennessee
