Panel: Black Maternal Mental Health

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 12:30pm

Tomasina with panel including Dr. Kimberly Sanders, Dr. Sal Corbin, Bri Mobley, Weluna Finley

Tomasina's discussion with our experts will touch on "the health state of the mind and it's processes for women of childbearing age" (and other definitions of black maternal mental health). Our discussion will further look at stressors, trauma and influences that impact black maternal mental health and in bringing awareness to the masses. We will ask if there are solutions that can yield a more hopeful, positive outcome as we look into these disparities.
