Full course description
Keynote Presentation of the 33rd Annual Health Equity Conference offered by the Public Health Students of African Descent (PHSAD) at the University of Michigan School of Public Health
Dr. Lynn Roberts will present an overview of the reproductive justice (RJ) framework and share her “notes from the field” on how the RJ movement is contesting and reimagining the public health discourse and response to racial disparities in maternal mortality and morbidity. In her address, she will present examples of the bold and unapologetic use of reproductive justice framing to ensure that Black mamas and Black births matter to all of us.
Public health professionals and students interested in maternal and child health and reproductive justice.
- Discuss the origins and key tenets of the reproductive justice framework
- Recognize ways to apply reproductive justice principles through engagement in transformative research, policies, and praxis that center those who are most impacted by Black maternal death
- Consider opportunities to integrate a reproductive justice framework into future public health scholarship
