ODP To Host Virtual Workshop on Postpartum Health Research

The NIH Office of Disease Prevention will host the Pathways to Prevention Workshop: Identifying Risks and Interventions to Optimize Postpartum Health on Nov. 29-Dec. 1. This virtual workshop is free and open to the public.

The United States is experiencing a growing maternal health crisis. The majority of maternal deaths and complications occur during the first year after the pregnancy has ended (the postpartum period). The research community must increase efforts to improve postpartum care.

Speakers in this workshop will discuss the current scientific evidence on predicting and preventing poor postpartum health outcomes. Attendees will have opportunities to submit questions and comments. After the workshop, an independent panel will draft a report outlining evidence gaps and priorities for future research. 

The workshop is cosponsored by ORWH, NHLBI, NICHD and NIMHD.
