Black Maternal Health: Centering Community to Advance Birth Equity Grand Rounds

There are dire statistics surrounding Black maternal health in the United States.

National and Local Efforts to Strengthen Primary Care

Thurs., May 30, 12-1 p.m. ET | Virtual

Primary care is the one medical specialty that reliably demonstrates improvement in health outcomes, health equity, and health care costs, yet there has been a noted decline in primary care financing, capacity, performance, equity, and patient access. How can we strengthen primary care to address these documented declines? Join the Harvard Medical School Center for Primary Care in welcoming Barbra Rabson, Dr. Ryan Schwarz, and Dr. Judith Steinberg who will discuss lessons learned in advancing policy and programs.
