TEDx MSU Denver: The dying mothers, sisters, daughters, friends
WATCH: Nurse Katrina Little reimagines postpartum and newborn care to improve the high maternal mortality rates in the U.S. for African American women.
Metropolitan State University of Denver partnered with TEDx Cherry Creek to present TEDx MSU Denver 2019 on Sept. 12. In the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading,” RED is broadcasting the big ideas MSU Denver thought leaders shared.
Here, veteran nurse and MSU Denver Department of Nursing Lecturer Katrina Little discusses how the solution to high maternal mortality rates in the U.S. for African American women will be a win for all women. That solution requires a reimagining of our health care system to eliminate unconscious bias and listen to the voices of women of color in distress while creating a bridge of care from the hospital to the home that makes postpartum and newborn home-health care the nationwide standard for all women.
