CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds Presents:

“Meeting the Challenges of Measuring and Preventing Maternal Mortality in the United States”
Tuesday, November 14, 2017
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET

Women in the United States are more likely to die from childbirth or pregnancy-related causes than other women in high-income countries. More evidence is needed to understand the actual causes of death better, but research suggests that half of these deaths may be preventable. Racial disparities persist. The risk of pregnancy-related deaths for black women is three to four times higher than those of white women.
