Thrilled to have served as a Guest Speaker at the MMRIA User Meeting (MUM) for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ERASE Maternal Mortality. The Maternal Mortality Review Information Application (MMRIA, or “Maria”) is a data system and a data strategy, designed to support the functions of Maternal Mortality Review Committees (MMRCs) through common data. On Day 1, I talked amongst other panelists about the implementation of Informant Interviews with families for a more enriched case review process. Informant Interviews act as a qualitative data collection tool help fully capture a birthing person’s story and the history of events leading to a maternal or infant death. The event had more than 400 attendees from MMRCs in various regions and jurisdictions in the United States. I’m so humbled to have been invited to speak. – April 22, 2023 💜 #community #strategicthinking #maternalhealth #maternalmortality


The week of April 11-17, 2023 is Black Maternal Health Week (BMHW). This week is dedicated to raising awareness around the struggles Black mothers face and addressing the health disparities that make it challenging for them to receive help for these struggles. Each year, this week is dedicated to focusing on building awareness, pushing for change, and amplifying voices of Black mothers and birthing people.

I am extremely honored to be invited back to serve as guest emcee for Day 1 of the Black Maternal Health Conference hosted by the Mom.ME. Organization. The event is sure to be enriched with thought provoking dialogue and important information impacting expecting Black mothers and Black mothers in the postpartum period. Please join us for this 2 Day Event! There is still time to register!

I wanted to share that the 2023 Empower Symposium hosted by Therapy PLUS, LLC was a HUGE success! This year’s theme was centered around raising awareness about maternal and infant health outcomes and child welfare in our State. We discussed strategies for prevention and methods for improving outcomes. The Symposium had over 60 social workers and maternal and infant care advocates to register. Attendees were from all over the State of Mississippi. With the support of the Mississippi State Department of Health and Centers For Disease Control (CDC) ERASE Grant funding we were able to provide the event at no cost to attendees along with lunch. SIX continuing educational credits were approved by the Mississippi Board of Social Workers and Marriage & Family Therapist and were also provided FREE to attendees! I am extremely thankful to our stakeholders Six Dimensions , Mississippi Child Advocacy Center, Krista Woods Counseling and Carlisle Counseling and Consulting Services,LLC for their partnership and dymanic presentations!

Our CEO/Founder and Maternal & Infant Healthcare Advocate, LeJeune Johnson was interviewed by Mississippi Today about the recent Mississippi Maternal Mortality Report, issued by the Mississippi State Department of Health today. The latest Maternal Mortality Report for our State, notes that maternal mortality has increased from the last report (2013-2016). Most significantly impacted are Black women, who are 4x more likely to die from pregnancy related conditions than White women. #healthequity #maternalhealth
