"Global health experts agree that how people are treated during childbirth can affect the health and well-being of mother, child, and family"... Vedam et al 2019

The attitudes and behaviors of healthcare professionals are rooted in cultural norms and bias. Recognizing these behaviors and addressing structural racism in our healthcare system are strategies needed to impact short and long-term outcomes for patients cared for in reproductive, maternity, and neonatal settings. 

Join Rose Horton & AWHONN for a conversation aimed at eradicating implicit bias with every patient, during every interaction, every time.


Rose Horton, MSM, RN-OB, NEA-BC
