Healthy Moms and Babies: Paving the Path to Reproductive Equity

October 30, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Eric P. Newman Education Center, Medical Campus
Thank you for attending our 12th annual conference.

What are the root causes of maternal and infant morbidity? What systems are in place (or need to be) to help combat this issue? Where do we stand regionally and around the world in terms of focusing on solutions?

This year marks our 12th annual conference which will focus on infant and maternal health outcomes.

Each fall, the Institute for Public Health at Washington University in St. Louis hosts a popular and informative annual conference surrounding a timely and critical public health topic.

Free of charge and open to the public, the conference features keynotes from top health professionals and discussion and audience Q&A with panelists from all sectors of reproductive health including physicians, educators, administrators from community organizations and more.

The conference also includes networking opportunities and an abstract poster session. Light fare and beverages are provided.
