Highlighting Marie Thoma's work on discrepancies in maternal mortality data

Faculty Associate Marie Thoma's recent Viewpoint article in JAMA delves into the landscape of maternal mortality data, bringing to the forefront the discrepancies among government sources in the United States.

Thoma and co-author Eugene Declercq discuss challenges in the classification of pregnancy-related deaths and underscore the need for cooperation among agencies to enhance transparency and data consistency. Such a collaborative effort can significantly alter policymakers' perspectives, ultimately contributing to the goal of reducing racial disparities in maternal mortality rates.
