NWA Health Summit

May 1 @ 8:30 am 4:00 pm

The Northwest Arkansas Health Summit returns in 2024 with a focus on maternal health. Arkansas has the highest maternal mortality rate in the nation with 43.5 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births. In addition, the state has the country’s third-highest infant mortality rate and ranks near the bottom in maternal health outcomes. Further, nearly half of Arkansas counties are considered maternal care deserts. Black maternal mortality in Arkansas rose 110% over two decades.

Health care organizations, community-based organizations, city and county leaders, and industry stakeholders are invited to learn more about the significant challenges women face in accessing quality and affordable maternal health care across Arkansas. Attendees can choose from one of three tracks: (1) public policy; (2) community-based care; and (3) quality clinical care. Throughout the day, attendees will explore solutions to improve maternal health outcomes in the state.

The event is free, but space is limited. Register today to secure your spot.
