STAT Podcast: An OB-GYN on the maternal mortality crisis in the U.S.

In a recent episode of STAT's "First Opinion Podcast," OBHG physician Alissa Erogbogbo argues that the only way the country can change this sad state of affairs is by addressing the inherent biases and inequities of traditional health care.

"As we learn to educate ourselves, understand that you're now going to open the door for that line of communication, that line of understanding, that line of empathy for all patients," Erogbogbo said.
