Listen: Parkview and public health officials discuss access to care for mothers and children

Creating healthier moms and babies: Improving access to care

Though there has been increased attention to maternal and child health, significant improvements still need to be made to increase access to quality healthcare. A lack of access to consistent, high-quality and affordable healthcare increases the risk and severity of chronic conditions, healthcare costs, the risk of poor health outcomes, health disparities and mortality rate.

Listen as Parkview Health leaders, Indiana public health officials and Healthy Mom & Baby challenge alumni to discuss the need for improved access to care for underrepresented mothers and children in Indiana and across the world.
