SPEAK UP Champions Seminar

Posted 19 days ago by Laura Reed

After Nurses Day on the Hill, join SPEAK UP Champions for an educational seminar on March 2 and March 9 starting at 12:30 p.m. This program will address implicit and explicit racial bias.
A Black woman is 3 to 4 times more likely to die of pregnancy-related complications than a white woman. Research shows that inequities in outcomes are primarily due to differences in how women are treated within the health care setting based on race (racism).
The SPEAK UP Champions© Implicit and Explicit Racial Bias education is 8 hours of live virtual interactive learning that outlines quality improvement strategies to support individuals and groups with dismantling racism, providing quality equitable care, and reducing health disparities.
Target Audience
Healthcare professionals who support and care for women before, during and after pregnancy or care for newborns.
