Keynote by Dr. Fleda Mask Jackson
Dr. Fleda Mask Jackson is the Founder and Director of Save 100 Babies. The Save 100 Babies network makes the connections between social determinant factors (education, employment, housing, food security, etc) and poor birth outcomes. The primary objective of Save 100 Babies is to develop individual and structural level stress interventions as the bridge between the social determinants of birth outcomes and clinical practices and social policy.
