Club Mom: Reducing Health Disparities in the African-American Community

Club Mom is a community health group for women historically disenfranchised from traditional medical and health systems. This program, led by St. Paul-Ramsey County Family Health, works with other organizations that share the goals of reducing health disparities among African-American women, and improving birth outcomes for African-American children. In addition to positive impacts on participants, Club Mom conveys community-level benefits related to prevention and improved longer-term health outcomes. Participants will gain tools and learn how to collaboratively make an impact on maternal and child health outcomes and infant mortality.

Presenters: Glenda and Jacquelynn, Club Mom participants; Tamiko Ralston, Nina Harris, St. Paul-Ramsey Public Health
