Earlier this month, members of the Black Maternal Health Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives announced the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021. What could this federal legislation mean for Black mothers in Wisconsin, which has the highest Black maternal mortality rate in the country?
Today on the show, we spend the hour with Dr. Tiffany Green and Lisa Peyton-Caire to discuss the Momnibus Act and Black women’s health.
Dr. Tiffany Green is an assistant professor in the Department of Population Health Sciences and the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
Lisa Peyton-Caire is the founding CEO and president of the Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness.
