April 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm

Join us for the first part of our new bi-monthly series, Breaking Barriers, to learn about the issues facing pregnant Kentuckians and how community groups, advocates, and policymakers can work together to reduce racial disparities in maternal and infant health outcomes. 

The first part of the series, Feeding the Future, will focus on the effects of food insecurity on family health, the work currently being done, and the road ahead.
