Race and Childbirth

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

In Virginia, black women die in childbirth three times more often than women of any other race. Is there a racial disparity in medical care? What is the cause and what can we do about it? Cathy will be talking to Dr. Lea Porche of EVMS, Virginian Pilot reporter Katherine Hafner, and community activist Erica McAfee about this critical issue. We hope you'll join us at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM. You can always get your questions in to the show early by emailing, tweeting, or calling us at 440-2665 or (800) 940-2240.

Today's Guests:

Dr. Lea Porche - Assistant Professor of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at EVMS
Katherine Hafner - Reporter at The Virginian-Pilot
Erica McAfee - Writer and Blogger
