HearMe20 is a targeted effort to improve maternal health outcomes among Black women in Colorado by providing culturally responsive and interdisciplinary education, and personalized support- 20 minutes at a time. The program not only focuses on health education, but also addresses social, cultural, and psychological factors affecting Black maternal health.
HearMe20 is designed for Black women of childbearing age (18-50 years), as a supplemental health education program to support various stages from pre-pregnancy to postpartum. It aims to bridge gaps in health literacy and patient satisfaction outcomes in Colorado by leveraging the expertise of Black health professionals in medical, public health, psychology, and behavior science fields.
The program offers both group and individualized education sessions, which can be virtual or in-person. These sessions cover a range of topics, including healthy behaviors, early detection of complications, and self-advocacy. Special attention is given to immigrant and refugee Black women, addressing issues like health literacy, acculturation, and language barriers.
