The Elaine Marieb College of Nursing Office of Research is pleased to present a talk byDr. Lucinda Canty, Associate Professor and Director of the Seedworks Health Equity Program, titled "Developing community initiatives to improve Black maternal health through the voices of Black women". In this talk, Dr Canty will discuss her research into severe maternal morbidity and maternal mortality among Black women. She will discuss the value of qualitative research and centering the voices of Black women.
