Please join us for the first event of the Science, Health, and Equity Series: Unintended Consequences of Premature Black Death at the Spurlock Museum on Tuesday, Apr. 30 at 4 p.m. 

The negative social determinants of health disproportionately impact Black Americans and innovative structural interventions are necessary to reduce poor health outcomes. Monica R. McLemore, a professor in the Department of Child, Family, and Population Health Nursing and interim director for the Manning-Price Spratlan Center for Anti-Racism and Equity (CARE) in Nursing at the University of Washington School of Nursing, will connect the dots between preventable maternal morbidity and mortality, infant mortality, and premature Black death.

Participants will learn to:

  • Articulate the connections between preventable maternal morbidity and mortality, infant mortality, and premature Black death.
  • Understand study designs that will be required to provide meaningful data that map assets and identify strengths and protective factors.
  • Imagine novel structural interventions that could be operationalized in the present.
