NPHW: Black Families Matter: The Truth About Maternal Mortality in Nassau County

African American women are up to four times more likely to die of pregnancy-related causes than their white counterparts. And it's happening right here, in Nassau County. Please join Birth Justice Warriors and Planned Parenthood of Nassau County for a special film screening and panel discussion that explores the biases and health care disparities that pregnant Black women face and how we can come together as a community to overcome them. This program will feature a screening of the short film, “Death By Delivery,” which examines why women today (and especially Black women) are dying during childbirth at higher rates than in 1987. After the film, guests will hear from a panel of experts in a guided discussion about improving maternal and infant health outcomes in Nassau County.

NPHW is a collaborative initiative of the School of Health Professions and Human Services and Division of Student Affairs
