HRSA Administrator Carole Johnson joined U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth and U.S. Representative Robin Kelly of Illinois at the Chicago M.O.M.S. Tour Stop on October 28.
The national baby shower tour is focused on reducing the unacceptably high maternal mortality and morbidity rates through raising awareness of maternal health care needs. The M.O.M.S. tour serves communities that often experience disproportionately high maternal mortality and morbidity rates.
As part of the event, Administrator Johnson, Senator Duckworth, and Representative Kelly took part in a roundtable discussion with health care providers, people with lived experience, and local leaders, and local service organizations, including Healthy Start programs, shared resources with members of the local community.
