Littlefield Leadership Lectures

Nurse Leadership and Health Care Policy: Building Equity in Maternal Care

The Littlefield Leadership Lecture is the signature lecture series at the UW-Madison School of Nursing.

As a registered nurse and co-founder and co-chair of the Black Maternal Health Caucus, Congresswoman Lauren Underwood addresses America’s Black maternal health crisis in Congress and advances policy solutions to improve maternal health outcomes and end disparities. School of Nursing Dean, Dr. Linda Scott, facilitated the discussion, which centered on maternal health—including the role of nurse leadership and health care policy in achieving equitable care.
