Event Information

In response to increasing U.S. maternal mortality rates, workshop participants will develop a research agenda targeted at the clinical causes of maternal morbidity and mortality.

An interdisciplinary team of experts will explore why women die from certain conditions (e.g., postpartum hemorrhage, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, infection, etc.), what can be done to identify patients at risk, and what interventions are required to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality.
