Maternal Care Quality Collaborative (MCQC) Public Meetings Notice

            In accordance with the state’s “Open Public Meetings Law,” P.L. 1975, c. 231, the Maternal Care Quality Collaborative (or, MCQC) will hold regular, quarterly meetings open to the public to discuss topics and resources related to improving maternal health for Black and Latina mothers and birthing people pre, during and after pregnancy. (As a point of clarification, the Collaborative defines “maternal health” as the health status of all birthing people of individuals commonly between 12 and 51 years old, including cisgender women, non-binary birthing people, transgender mothers and birthing people who do not identify themselves by sex or gender. While most of the dire maternal mortality and severe morbidity statistics to date report on the health outcomes of cisgender Black and Latina mothers of childbearing age, the Collaborative will discuss – and encourage – data-to-action for other impacted birthing people of color when applicable).

            Consistent with the requirements of New Jersey Statutes Title 10. Civil Rights 10 § 4-9.1, electronic notice of the MCQC’s public meetings is also provided. The first MCQC meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 29 from 10:00am to 12:30pm. Meetings may be conducted electronically or in-person. Formal action by MCQC members may be taken at these public meetings. Meeting materials, including the proposed agenda (to the extent presently known) can be found under each meeting’s “Materials” section (see below). Any member of the public wishing to attend the June 29th meeting may do so by following the instructions below:
