The Maternal Health and Learning Innovation Center (MHLIC) is proud to host the 2nd annual National Maternal Health Innovation Symposium on August 30-31st, 2021. This will be a free, hybrid-virtual event.
By attending, you will:
- Deepen understanding of current issues in maternal health,
- Learn about innovative initiatives to improve maternal health, particularly for Black and Indigenous birthing people, and people living in rural areas, and
- Obtain skills and information needed to create change in communities.
Our goal is that the Symposium will continue to grow into a trusted, evidence-driven, and community-centered space for maternal health professionals and others invested in the well-being of families to connect, recharge, and to advance maternal health equity in the communities in which they serve and support.
The Symposium is for everyone interested in improving maternal health outcomes, including public health professionals, health care providers and administrators, community groups, advocates, policy makers, researchers, and many others.
What to Expect in 2021
We have reimagined the Symposium experience and are now offering two ways to attend to meet each attendee’s comfort level: join us in-person in Baltimore or attend virtually via live-stream. We are closely monitoring the situation related to COVID-19 and will make a final decision about the in-person components by June 30, 2021. We encourage attendees to hold on making travel arrangements until a final decision is made and posted here.
