Cherished Futures Aims to Upend Health Disparities for Black Moms, Babies

A growing body of research shows exposure to racism increases racial disparities in Black people’s health. Compared to their white counterparts, Black babies in Los Angeles are three times more likely to die in their first year. But five hospitals across Los Angeles County, along with the support of several health care partners, are working to change that with Cherished Futures for Black moms and babies.
