WELCOME TO THE 2022 BLACK MATERNAL HEALTH CONFERENCE & TRAINING INSTITUTETM
Sept 17-18, 2022
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Founded and led by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA), the Black Maternal Health Conference and Training InstituteTM (BMHC22) is the premiere assembly for Black women, clinicians, professionals, advocates, and other stakeholders working to improve maternal health using the birth justice, reproductive justice, and human rights frameworks. This year’s conference will be hybrid (virtual and in-person) and will offer a national space for learning, rich discussions, and mobilization to transform Black Maternal Health, rights, and justice. We need a place to be in community together, to vision and dream, and to celebrate each other.
The 2022 Black Maternal Health Conference and Training InstituteTM meets a national need for a forum dedicated to Black Maternal Health and Black people working to improve our outcomes. To date, discussions about Black Maternal Health have been carved into existing reproductive, maternal, and public health conferences where there is little space for meaningful dialogue and limited framing on health equity and reproductive justice. BMMA has created that space with BMHC22 and we center Black Mamas’ voices and experiences in all activities. This conference is for us, by us!
Who is the BMHC22 for?
BMHC22 is targeted to care providers, researchers, advocates, public health professionals, and Black Mamas who are working to advance maternal, birth, and reproductive justice, and those who are interested in learning more about how to work towards health equity using the reproductive justice and birth justice frameworks. We also welcome artists, media and cultural workers who want to elevate the voices and experiences of Black Mamas and the various issues connected to Black Maternal Health. BMHC22 is open to anyone who is invested in the health and longevity of Black Mamas, and Black innovators in health who serve our communities!
The goals of BMHC are to:
- Build capacity of Black leaders in maternal health to shape programs, policy, and care, and to engage in evidence-based advocacy
- Disseminate best practices to address critical issues in Black maternal health from different sectors, including research, care, policy, and culture shift
- Grow a community and network of stakeholders committed to improving Black Maternal Health
- Cultivate a space of love, respect and listening that centers the voices and experiences of Black Mamas, Black birthworkers, Black scholars, and Black women leaders.
