Reproductive Wellness for Women with Chronic Conditions

Sponsored by: The WK Kellogg Foundation
Submission deadline for abstracts: February 4, 2022

With sponsorship from The WK Kellogg Foundation, Health Services Research (HSR), the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) Jordan Institute for Families and the UNC Collaborative for Maternal and Infant Health are partnering to publish a series of special sections of upcoming issues focused on reproductive wellness for women with chronic conditions. The special sections will be edited by HSR’s team of Senior Associate Editors and Editor-in-Chief, with co-editor guidance from Sarah Verbiest, DrPH, MSW, MPH, and Natalie Hernandez, PhD, MPH.

These special sections will focus on reproductive wellness and preconception care for women with chronic conditions. Recent work listening to women of color with chronic conditions has underscored many gaps in care. These gaps contribute to maternal mortality and morbidity, infertility, miscarriage and infant loss, and long-term health impacts for women and their families. We are seeking to curate a series of articles, to be published in a special section across several regular HSR issues, that will highlight work being done across a variety of sectors — health care, public health, social work, community leadership, maternal and child health, chronic disease, and others — that offers solutions and strategies toward improving care.
