Research & Grants Committee

Mission Statement

The mission of the Research and Grants committee is to work with a diverse group of early career researchers and students to produce evidence-based practices and programs focused on maternal health and reproductive justice. Our work centers on the Black birthing experience with special interests in disparities, access to doula care, maternal morbidity and mortality, the impact of racial discrimination on mental health, family planning, and reproductive justice. Additionally, we hope to make the findings of our research accessible to affected communities and anyone who is interested in the field. We support our varied research endeavors by applying to public and private grants and by mentoring future clinicians, advocates, and academics.
