Join us in our premiere of the VIPS in Action series. This is a collaboration between JMM Health Solutions and ROSE Inc (Reaching Our Sisters Everywhere). ROSE has been on a mission to address breastfeeding disparities in communities of color. Additionally, since their inception, they have partnered with communities to build equity in maternal and pediatric healthcare through advocacy, education and support. In this episode we hear from two of the leaders that made it all happen. The leaders that made it possible for birth professionals to extend and expand their reach throughout the pandemic to provide the services necessary for perinatal and postnatal women. ROSE was able to this initiative through a grant, received by quite a few birth professionals throughout the country. Listen as we discuss the VIPS in Action cohort, and why addressing perinatal issues is of the utmost importance.
