Undergraduate Samantha Kelts pushes for passage of Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act in published letter

Case Western Reserve University undergraduate student Samantha Kelts recently wrote a letter to the editor that was published by cleveland.com

Kelts was inspired by the Child Studies course taught by Gabriella Celeste, policy director of the Schubert Center for Child Studies. In the piece, Kelts discussed the role of systemic racism in black infant mortality rates in her letter, titled “Towering Black infant mortality rate is a national stain.” Passage of the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act in the House and Senate, Kelts wrote, would begin to repair racially biased health disparities nationwide.
