Protecting Yourself and Your Patients from Implicit Biases

Case Study: Interrupting Bias in Maternal Health 

Diversity Science worked with John Snow, Inc. to develop diversity and inclusion trainings for 5,000 maternal health clinics in alignment with Federal Title VII requirements. These trainings build capacity to understand and interrupt bias in patient care, provide culturally sensitive care, work effectively with medical interpreters, and set a foundation for improving maternal and perinatal health for 100,000s of patients every year.

“It is wonderful to work with like-minded consultants with such a commitment to inclusion, diversity, and to taking a science-based approach.”

– Senior consultant JSI
