Before, Between and Beyond Pregnancy Workshop

 

The Center for Community Health, School of Public Health and ForHER at the UNT Health Science Center are joining with other community organizations to present a workshop on preconception and interconception health.  “Before, Between and Beyond Pregnancy” will be held at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens on Friday, Feb. 27, from 9 a.m. to 2:10 p.m.

Infant mortality and low birth-weight rates are at least twice as high for African American women compared with Caucasian women.  In North Texas, the most disparate rates of infant mortality are in specific areas.  This workshop will focus on preconception and interconception health with the goal of reducing poor pregnancy outcomes.

Dr. Hani Atrash from the National Center on Birth Defects  at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will provide the keynote address. Other speakers include Dr. Jamboor Vishwanatha, Dr. Anita Kurian, Tamara Wrenn, Ronzetta Robinson, Carol Brady and Dr. Ralph Anderson.  A question-and-answer session moderated by Dr. Elwyn Grimes is included.
