A message from our
about our theme
Health Equity and Social Justice
At NPA, we believe that everyone has the right to high-quality, respectful perinatal care.
The last two years of the pandemic has reminded us that the U.S. healthcare system has failed to deliver on the promise of health equity. While standards of care have improved for some, they remain disparate for those of us who are:
To re-imagine a healthcare system that is fair, just, equitable, and accessible to all, we must examine our biases, interrogate broken systems, and explore new ways of delivering care.
This year's conference, Perinatology at the Intersection of Health Equity and Social Justice, will be an opportunity for each of us to recommit to this fundamental belief—that every pregnancy, every baby, and every parent deserves equitable, trauma-informed, family-centered care.
We honor everyone who is working to deliver equitable care, advocate for social justice, and improve health outcomes for our diverse communities.
We invite you to JOIN US at our May 2022 conference!
