Black Maternal Health Conference
The MOTHER Lab (Maternal Outcomes for Translational Health Equity Research) was launched July 2020 after Dr. Amutah-Onukagha, coming out of her work in organizing the Black Maternal Health Conference . Dr. Amutah-Onukagha felt it necessary for this lab due to her extensive work within the maternal health field recognizing a lack of specific research labs devoted to studying the disparities in maternal healthcare for black women and mothers. Dr. Amutah-Onukagha directs the lab out of Tufts University School of Medicine, and recruited a cohort of undergraduate, graduate and doctoral/medical students interested in supporting the lab’s work. Members of the MOTHER Lab operate out of not only MA, but multiple other states across the United States.
You can learn more about the foundations of the lab through our presentation at the APHA 2021 Annual Meeting which can be found on our publications page or through this link
