|Social determinants of health have become a bit of a buzzword in today’s discussion of healthcare inequities. Social determinants of health are broadly defined as conditions in the places where people live, learn, work and play that affect a wide range of health and quality-of-life risks and outcomes. These factors almost always include education access and quality, health care access and quality, neighborhood and built environment, economic stability and social and community context. All of these factors play a role in how individuals and communities maintain their health. Social determinants of health plays into the black experience within healthcare, which is a factor in the increase in black maternal morbidity and mortality. An important note to highlight in the increase in black maternal morbidity and mortality is the growing public knowledge of the racial history within Obstetrics and Gynecology. We have these disparities and more and more Americans are learning about this health disparity, yet there are not many articles that highlight the ways to save black women from being just another statistic. I propose that if we focus on improving the public intellectualism of our country through social media, we are then all fighting for the survival of black women throughout pregnancy and post-partum.
