"The Residual Impact of Historical Structural Inequities: Connecting Residential Segregation and Mortgage Discrimination to Current Infant Mortality and Breastfeeding Rates"
Thursday, July 27, 2017 from 12-1:30 pm MT
Join national partners for a six-part webinar series on addressing infant mortality cosponsored by the National Institute for Children's Health Quality (NICHQ) and the Association of Maternal Child Health Programs (AMCHP). The first webinar defines health equity; explains the various levels of structural inequity; describes the practices of the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation (HOLC) and associated policies; relates how past housing policies and mortgage discrimination inform current health equity improvement work; and identifies ways Healthy Start can serve to address historical structural inequities and improve disparities in infant mortality and breastfeeding initiation and duration rates.
