Raising Awareness and Moving the Needle: Racial Health Disparities in Fertility and Maternal Health

Feb 22, 2021   |  
Webinar   |  

As the recent movement for racial equality has reignited discussions about long-standing inequities and institutionalized racism in the United States, employers are increasingly evaluating programs and policies that can support a diverse workforce. Inequality comes in many forms, but race-related disparities in fertility and maternal health, especially among Black women, are particularly resistant to change. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) continue to have higher rates of infertility and lower rates of accessing fertility care than their white contemporaries—as well as a higher risk of maternal mortality.

Join this webinar to learn more about the race-related health disparities that exist in fertility and maternal health, and how employers can provide coverage and access to support the full continuum of care – from fertility and family building, to prenatal and postnatal – to bring greater awareness to these issues and move the needle on health disparities.
