Worcester Healthy Baby Collaborative
Worcester has the highest infant mortality rate in Massachusetts, and it is most prevalent in the Ghanaian community. In collaboration with Nhyira Ba, a Ghanaian led organization, we addressed communication barriers between medical practitioners and Ghanaian women on issues related to nutrition, food preparation, and the role of food in Ghanaian culture, by producing educational videos targeted at medical practitioners. With this effort we hope to create greater understanding between practitioners and their Ghanaian patients.
