This week marks Health Education Week and Healthcare Quality Week. In that spirit, we’d like to share with everyone links to sites that are producing wonderful work on issues relevant to women’s health:
National Women's Health Network
National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health
University Coalitions for Global Health blog
BlogHer Health and Wellness
Women's Health News
ACLU's reproductive rights blog
And an event:
On October 27, one of our member centers, the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy at UMass-Boston , will co-host a community event exploring the consequences of inequality on the health and well-being of mothers and babies. The event features a screening of one episode of the acclaimed documentary Unnatural Causes entitled, "When the Bough Breaks." This episode examines the high rates of preterm birth, infant mortality, and infant morbidity in the African American community and explores the role that racism plays in birth outcomes. A panel presentation and community discussion will follow. For more information, click here .
Do let us know (in the comments section) what your organization is doing in the area of health and we will do our best to continue to spread word here on THE REAL DEAL!
