Human Rights & Better Health Outcomes
The United States continues to report the highest rates of maternal mortality for birth parents when compared to 10 similarly wealthy countries – many of these deaths are preventable.

Nationally recognized as a voice on perinatal equity, Joia Adele Crear-Perry, MD, FACOG, will discuss the impact of social determinants and human rights on health outcomes for mothers and babies.
