Serena experienced some frightening moments post-delivery and we are so glad she is OK.
And important issues are being brought to light as a result of Serena sharing her birth experience. One of them is that there are some very large gaps in our worldwide bank of knowledge of health issues!
Did you know that black moms are 49 percent more likely than white moms to deliver prematurely? And we lack enough understanding on why.
And did you know that the entire world's understanding of the intersection of health and genetics is based on research and data compiled of only 5% non-whites?
We're thinking we should all elect representatives who will support and prioritize race-specific medical research, care, and education. This country has all the tools available to ensure quality healthcare for everyone, so let's get some people to work!
