08 May The Maternal Health Crisis: How the Medtech Industry Can Help
According to the CDC, maternal mortality rates have steadily increased since 2018. Of these preventable deaths, Black women are impacted 3-4x more than white women. This is especially alarming because more than 80% of pregnancy related deaths are preventable. Additionally, even though women account for about 80% of the healthcare industry’s consumer purchasing, women’s health is considered only a small subsection of healthcare. This sets the stage for this webinar focused on diverse female founders in the maternal health space. This virtual panel discussion will address three core objectives: (1) Showcase diverse female founders and their journeys into medtech as a women of color, (2) Highlight ways current technologies are being used in the maternal health space and gaps that need to be addressed and/or are addressed by the founders, and (3) Give founders a platform to discuss how their lived experiences as a woman and woman of color showcases the importance of diversity in clinical research/medtech.
All are welcome and encouraged to attend this webinar and learn more about this important topic.
