Statewide Advisory Committee on Eliminating Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Birth Outcomes

The Statewide Advisory Committee on Eliminating Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Birth Outcomes has been established to advise the Department of Health Services in the implementation of the Framework for Action. The committee will annually review the purpose of the Framework, track progress, recommend revisions, and engage additional partners. Advisory Committee members may also be asked to take on the role of ambassadors, help to raise awareness, identify resources, and facilitate action at all levels of the community.

Although originally committee members were appointed, all interested individuals are now welcome to participate as committee and workgroup members. Currently, representatives from 40 - 50 diverse organizations regularly attend committee meetings and contribute time and effort on one or more workgroups. Committee meetings are held 2 - 3 times per year and are open to the public.
