This 1-hour webinar described how police violence and racial inequities in maternal and infant health are concurrent and compounding public health crises. The webinar featured Dr. Rachel R. Hardeman, PhD, MPH, Associate Professor and director of the Center for Antiracism Research for Health Equity at the University of Minnesota, who draws on the themes of “Stolen Breaths,” a Perspective she co-authored in the New England Journal of Medicine in July 2020. Dr. Hardeman explored how solutions to racial health inequities are rooted in the material conditions in which those inequities thrive. She also presented specific recommendations related to workforce, training, and data to dismantle structural racism in the field of sexual and reproductive health.
