The MEND Project

California has passed a new law (SB464) that requires hospital-based perinatal clinicians to receive implicit bias training, with the goal of improving care and outcomes for Black birthing people in particular. This project has engaged Black birthing people, perinatal clinicians, and socio-legal scholars to produce evidence-based guidance for policy and health care stakeholders to consider in implementing the new law.

The MEND Project is funded by UCSF Preterm Birth Initiative and led by Sarah Garrett at UCSF. UC Law SF partners include Alexandra Montague, Mallory Warner, Sarah Hooper and student Sydney Johnson.
