The MCNY Black Maternal Health Initiative (BMHI) is a student and community engagement project that seeks to respond to the existential crisis of Black maternal health in the U.S., New York City, and most specifically, the Bronx.


Our Mission

  • To  provide access to scholarly material, both in  print and online, along with research services and critical information literacy instruction;
  • To provide collaborative community space, resources, and cultural programing to foster lifelong learning.
