I enjoyed reading this article. Only when people are dedicated to making change, will the health care system become less racist. Even before COVID-19, maternal mortality effected black women more than women from any other group.

Access to healthcare and insurance is a major factor in why black women have much different experiences in the health care system. Your article mentioned that educating doctors about racial disparities is important. However, it is also important for advocates to fight for better health care opportunities so that marginalized communities have more access to preventative care.
