Women’s Health Roundtable Friday March 25, 2022, at 3:00 pm Congressman Gerry Connolly will be hosting a roundtable to give us the chance to discuss maternal health, reproductive health, and inequities in the healthcare space. It’s critical that we bring attention and awareness to the disparities that women, and especially women of color, experience when it comes to health and access to care. We’ll highlight federal, state, and local action to tackle these disparities in women’s health and get insight from attendees that could help shape policies or legislation in the women’s health space.
