Description

Since the inception of our nation, inequities in health have been persistent, avoidable threats to our communities – to women, mothers, and babies. Those inequities reflect systemic flaws and abnormalities in the economic, social, and moral fabric of our country – rooted in systems of privilege and oppression. To end those threats to our society and to childbirth, we need to find new solutions to old problems. That requires leaders across all sectors, disciplines, and in communities to challenge widely accepted language and sometimes, deeply held beliefs—particularly regarding how we choose to value women based on racial, ethnic, and class identities. It requires us to challenge ourselves and the role we play in the production of the public’s health; infant and maternal mortality; healthcare; and the childbirth experience. It starts by making our systems and institutions equitable, diverse, and inclusive through policies, programs, and practices. Ultimately, it requires each of us to experience the discomfort of change and to be brave enough to do that willingly—to seek it. We have a choice. We can stay as we are and perpetuate inequitable and at times failing childbirth experiences that lead to illness, trauma, and at times early death or we can embrace equity and produce health – making childbirth the successful, positive, and healthy experience every woman deserves. You decide.

Participants may earn 1 Lamaze Contact Hour and 1 Contact Hour of CABRN.

Natalie S. Burke, President & CEO of CommonHealth ACTION is a nationally-known speaker, “equity evangelist,” strategist, master facilitator, and public health leader, Natalie provides executive leadership for CommonHealth ACTION whose mission is to develop people and organizations to produce health through equitable policies, programs, and practices.

Since the mid-90s, Natalie has held leadership positions focused on creating opportunities for health through community, institutional, systemic, and policy change. Her public health and health care experience includes technical assistance and capacity building for hundreds of community-based organizations and collaboratives; universities and medical schools; national and international corporate entities; and philanthropy—as well as federal, state, and local governments. Prior to co-founding CommonHealth ACTION in 2004, Natalie was in executive leadership at the National Association of County and City Health Officials in Washington, DC, where she managed the National Turning Point Initiative.

A graduate of the University of Maryland with a degree in Government and Politics, Natalie conducted federal health policy analyses at the National Health Policy Forum and was on staff at the National Institutes of Health. She has been selected for numerous national fellowships including the Emerging Leaders in Public Health Fellowship (Jointly hosted by the University of North Carolina’s Schools of Business and Public Health) and New York University’s Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service Lead the Way Fellowship for visionary and entrepreneurial leaders in the nonprofit sector. In 2012, Natalie was selected to the Council of Innovation Advisors for ConvergeUS, a national initiative focused on technology-based social innovation between the technology sector and the nation’s nonprofits. In addition, she co-authored a chapter featuring the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies’ PLACE MATTERS Initiative in the second edition of Tackling Health Inequities through Public Health Practice (2010).

Committed to the health and well-being of all people, Natalie views health as the product of complex interactions amongst systems and factors such as education, employment, environmental conditions, access to technology, housing, transportation, and healthcare. Throughout her career, she has sought to understand the root causes of ill-health including the delicate balance amongst genetics, personal health behaviors, and the systems and institutions that provide the contexts within which we live our lives and make our decisions. That understanding guides her work with corporate, academic, elected, and community leaders whose decisions produce health. For the past decade through curriculum development, education, and publications, she has focused on the roles that systemic privilege and oppression play in the production of the public’s health, particularly health inequities—this includes serving as the primary architect for CommonHealth ACTION’s nationally-recognized Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Training Institute.

Since 2016, Natalie has served as co-Director of the Culture of Health Leaders National Program Center, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; she directs the Kaiser Permanente Institute for Equitable Leadership in Baltimore; she is a member of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Equity Advisory Group; she serves on the Ventures Advisory Group for ReThink Health; and she is a member of the NationSwell Council.

“As an advisor to corporate leaders, communities aspiring to change, and everyone in between—I guide people and organizations to common language, plans, and solutions necessary to make the world a healthy and equitable place. As a strategist, I focus on strengthening the connective tissue that forms relationships and organizations. As a facilitator, I cultivate spaces of constructive discomfort where people exchange ideas that create change. As a writer, I use what I know to say what needs to be said and as a leader, I know that world-changing is serious business but then again, what better way is there for me to spend my time?”
