Event Details

Hosted by the Wilf Impact Center for Public Interest Law, Wilf Impact Center Conversations is a speaker series that highlights how current events impact civil rights and civil liberties.

BIPOC mothers are three to four more times likely than non-Hispanic white mothers to die from pregnancy-related issues—during pregnancy, childbirth, and up to one year postpartum. Doulas and Midwives serving the community are looking to bridge this disparity. Join If/When/How and the Wilf Impact Center for Public Interest Law to discuss the issues, the solutions, and how we as community members and future attorneys can contribute to the change.

Guest Speakers:

Tia Dowling, Infertility Birth and Postpartum Doula
Alison Whitney, Neighborhood Clinical Systems Manager, NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

This event is open to all NYLS students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
