The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) launched a new, free and accredited e-learning program designed to develop maternal health care providers’ knowledge and skills in culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS). The e-learning aims to help eliminate disparities facing BIPOC communities.

Black women are three to four times more likely than white women to die in pregnancy or childbirth, regardless of income or education level. Women of color report feeling mistreated, ignored, or dismissed by their prenatal providers at higher rates than white women.

This e-learning program covers:

  • Self-awareness of beliefs, bias, and stereotypes
  • How and why to get to know a patient’s cultural identity
  • Strategies for providing respectful, compassionate, high quality maternal healthcare
