Creative Investment Research Sparks Conversation and Solutions for Black Maternal Mortality
Following the July 4th Publication of the Creative Investment Research Black Maternal Mortality Reparation Facility, National Organizations Step Up.
On July 28, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce hosted Equality of Opportunity In Action: Addressing Maternal Healthcare Disparities. Echoing the solution proposed by our facility, the Chamber cited the role that barriers to quality maternal healthcare play in leading to a higher prevalence of underlying health conditions that complicate pregnancy.
On August 5, 2021, Howard University announced the creation of a new center dedicated to researching health disparities. We note that the University's Center for Minority Health Services Research was founded in 2002 and is funded by the Federal government.
On August 9, 2021, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York announced a seminar on "The Fourth Trimester and Beyond: The Case for Broad Investments in Maternal and Child Health"
A review of the firm's internet log traffic reveals that these organizations made several visits to various firm web properties, including our main website, the July 4th press release and the Black Maternal Mortality Facility editorial published by the firm. See: https://us1.campaign-
The issue has been a focal point for the firm for some time. On September 24, 2018, William Michael Cunningham testified before the DC City Council noting the District's elevated level of Black maternal mortality and urged the city, headed by a Black female Mayor, to address the problem.

On September 12, 2019, Mr. Cunningham addressed the issue at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's 49th Annual Legislative Conference (ALC). See: https://youtu.be/
Prior to these efforts, Creative Investment Research noted the economic impact of these factors in 1990, having reached out to many of these entities, specifically Alma Matter Howard University, with proposed investment solutions.
William Michael Cunningham, CEO, stated that:
"We are pleased to see progress being made and are optimistic that relevant, impactful solutions may finally be brought forward. Once we suggested the involvement of the Federal Reserve, we knew this would generate significant interest, as it has. We note that Howard's Center will not be operational until 2023 and even then will face issues reaching the relevant community. We suggest the Center be placed in Ward 8 of the District."
