Memorial Recognizes Black Maternal Health Week

March 30, 2022

Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center’s P3 Center for Teens, Moms & Kids will host a day of awareness and advocacy in recognition of Black Maternal Health Week on Wednesday, April 13.

The event, which will take place from 10:00 am – 2:30 pm at the Niagara Falls Train Station (825 Depot Avenue W), is funded through the NYS Maternal and Infant Community Health Collaborative.

Event speakers will include Mikayla Howard from the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center, Samika Sullivan from the Niagara Falls Housing Authority, Ina “Imeisha” Robinson, MPH from Safe States Alliance, Roshia McCoy, NP at NFMMC, and Dr. Davina Moss-King from Positive Direction and Associates, Inc.

“In a society where the voices of women, especially black women, are often trivialized, we place great priority in simply listening to the needs and concerns that women in our community express,” said Eileen Wrobel, Maternal and Infant Health Initiative Coordinator for Memorial’s P3 Center.

Discussion topics will include historical trauma, personal experiences with birth defects and infant loss, public health solutions, OB/GYN care, and maternal mental health.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to bring a lunch and share their experiences during the “lunch & learn” portion of the program. Panelists will also be available during a Q&A session at the close of the day.
