CCHE would like to alert you to a webinar that may be of interest ~
Social Determinants of Grief: The Impact of Black Infant Loss
When: Friday, April 10 from 9-10:00am CST
Understanding African American grief requires taking a long look at the historical and contemporary experiences around the issues of death. But troublingly, there is very little research conducted on Black grief and its connection to racism and related social injustices. Understanding the impact of systemic racism and its influence on how a person reacts to loss sets the stage for addressing how best to support communities that are disproportionately affected by infant death.
This webinar will offer insight on how some women of color deal with compounded loss and trauma. Participants will walk away with an opportunity to gain additional knowledge on how to best serve communities of color affected by infant loss.
We realize this time may be difficult for some of our network. If you cannot attend, please register to receive the recording.
This webinar is hosted by the National Institute for Children’s Health Quality (NICHQ) on Behalf of Baby’s 1st Network.
