The disparity in black infant and black maternal mortality is NOT acceptable.
Family Health Advocacy training prepares and empowers non-traditional health care workers, advocates, family members, colleagues and friends with tools and skills necessary to address the root causes of adverse perinatal outcomes.
With a severe shortage of health care workers, maternal care desserts, hospital closures, limited access to care, and exacerbated social determinants of health in urban, suburban and rural communities, H.E.A.R.T. for Georgia is a deliberate response to a critical issue.
Recognizing that many of us have served as caregivers and resident health advocates for our families, we knew the significance of having a trained and equipped "family health advocate."
We also recognized that most of what we learned was by "trial and error."
The H.E.A.R.T. for Georgia is a comprehensive training system to provide "trusted family members" with health literacy and patient advocacy strategies to improve perinatal outcomes before,
during and after pregnancy. Is it possible? YES, IT IS!
Join us for the pilot of a calculated and strategic response to the infant and
maternal mortality crisis plaguing our communities. You can make a difference TODAY!
For those desiring more knowledge:
Now that you have a better understanding of the great need to improve perinatal outcomes for infants and mothers, join us and become equipped to advocate and educate family, friends and colleagues.
We hope you will consider investing the time to save a life.
