Champions for Change Summit

October 18 - 20, 2019 - Houston, Texas

The Champions for Change Summit is dedicated to empowering our community with the education, training, and resources needed to make necessary changes in maternal health. National Accreta Foundation is a proud member of the executive council of MoMMA’s Voices - a national coalition of patient organizations and individuals with lived experiences or those who represent them, using their voice to reduce maternal complications in pregnancy and the postpartum period. Join us at this important event to:

  • Connect with survivors, volunteer leaders and other like-minded champions for change in maternal health.

  • Learn to share your story in an impactful way to influence health care practices.

  • Celebrate the successes that have been made thus far, and honor the effected families we work so hard for.

  • Use the tools from Summit to ignite a fire of change in your local communities.
