  • This event has passed.

June 19, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Join Black Women’s Health Imperative, In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda, and Human Rights Watch for a webinar on “Maternal Health, Climate Change and Birth Outcomes: Environmental and Reproductive Justice Intersections.”

Speakers will raise the profile of the intersections between maternal health, climate change, and birth outcomes. This webinar seeks to share key findings, ideas, and opportunities to take action. Attendees will gain an understanding of available epidemiology, reproductive justice implications, and policy and community interventions. Pregnant people are more susceptible to heat stress than non-pregnant people but are often missed in public health narratives and outreach.
