Investigation into hospital bias for maternal care. UC Davis Bulosan Center for Filipino Studies is moving in a new direction. Broadway International Festival this weekend.
Investigation into Hospital Bias in Maternal Care
Black women are far more likely than other pregnant people to die during pregnancy. In 2019, California lawmakers passed a law requiring hospitals to provide training on unconscious bias and racial disparities around maternal deaths. Yet a new investigation by the California Department of Justice finds that few hospitals are complying, and serious disparities - especially for Black women - still persist. Kristen Hwang, Healthcare Reporter for CalMatters, talks about the investigation, as well as recommended steps aimed at reducing maternal mortality.
Bulosan Center’s New Direction
Five years ago, a first-of-its-kind grassroots research organization focused on the experiences of the Filipino American community was established at UC Davis - the Bulosan Center for Filipino Studies. Now the center is embarking on a new, independent direction, while continuing its community-engaged work. Dr. Robyn Rodriguez, founder of the Bulosan Center, joins Insight to look back on the organization’s founding, mission, and impact on the local Filipino community. She also talks about its future as a priority of the Amado Khaya Initiative, named after her late son.
