Our Program

Our team brings over a decade of experience leading clinical and community-based research to reduce disparities in perinatal cardiovascular disease risk factors (e.g., obesity, hypertension, diabetes).

We intentionally and humbly collaborate with community, academic, and clinical partners to amplify the voices of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous birthing families in Philadelphia.

We are passionate about conducting research and developing partnerships that inform policies and practices to create a more equitable health care system for birthing families.
