Join EverThrive Illinois for a Policy Symposium focusing on the current health inequities in maternal health and how to address the rise in maternal mortality.
Forging Strategies to Address Maternal Mortality in Illinois
Tuesday, June 26
5:00pm – 7:30pm
Katten Muchin Rosenman
525 W Monroe St. | 19th floor
Chicago, IL 60661
Join EverThrive Illinois as we convene expert panelists to understand the underlying issues contributing to a rise in maternal mortality, and begin a discussion on how policymakers and advocates can address this growing health crisis.
Attendees will hear from experts about the historical and current contributing factors that drive racial health inequities – black women are dying at three times the rate of their white counterparts. This conversation will examine data, provide an overview of promising models to reverse the trend, and begin to develop policy opportunities for solutions. This discussion will be viewed through a racial equity lens in order to understand the root of the problem, and begin to truly improve health outcomes for women.
A brief policy update on the outcome of the legislative session will help us contextualize the discussion.
A networking reception will open up the event from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. with appetizers and drinks. The panel discussion will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m.
