From California Preterm Birth Initiative:
Join us at a special Collaboratory event jointly sponsored by the UCSF California Preterm Birth Initiative (PTBi), the APHA Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) section and the Society for the Analysis of African American Public Health Issues (SAAPHI).
Speakers will include thought leaders: Joia Crear-Perry, founder and president of the National Birth Equity Collaborative and PTBi Strategic Advisory Board member, and Monica McLemore, assistant professor in the Family Health Care Nursing Department, an affiliated scientist with Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health, and a member of the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health at the University California San Francisco.
Learn how health research initiatives centered community wisdom to evolve their missions, leadership teams and research strategies to focus anti-racism and drive positive, sustainable change for the organization and most importantly the communities they serve.
What attendees will take away from this:
- Practical guidance in creating authentically community-partnered research, including securing adequate funding, leveraging local resources, and translating research into action
- Stories and successes from the critical voices of the work, including our Black leadership, Community Advisory Board, Benioff Community Innovators and Postdoctoral Fellows.
- Learnings around the community-centered creation of The Abundant Birth Project, led by PTBi Collective Impact partner Expecting Justice, that will provide cash supplements for Black and Pacific Islander pregnant persons in San Francisco.
This is a not-to-be-missed event for those working in research and public health looking to achieve authentic partnership - not just engagement - with the communities they serve.
