Black Pregnancy Expert to Lobby on Capitol Hill


Orlando, FL Dr. Linda Burke, board-certified OB-GYN physician, author and blogger, travels to Washington, D.C. in March of 2019 to lobby on Capitol Hill for women's health. Her passion, advocacy and exceptional clinical acumen earned her a full scholarship to attend the 37th Annual Congressional Leadership Conference, the President's Conference in Washington, DC from March 10th through 12th. Dr. Burke was recently reappointed to the District 12 Perinatal Morbidity Committee American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).

During this annual conference, OB-GYN physicians from across the nation learn how to better lobby their U.S. Senators and Representatives on behalf of ACOG and their individual communities. Dr. Burke will use this opportunity to discuss strategies for reducing maternal mortality - especially as it relates to African-American women whose death rate is 3x greater than non-black women in the United States, according to the CDC.

On December 27, 2018, President Donald Trump signed the Preventing Maternal Death Act of 2017, mandating all 50 states to report maternal deaths, review the cause, inform the public and provide ongoing training to healthcare providers. Dr. Burke focuses on this monumental first step in protecting pregnant women, and their unborn babies, and plans to become actively involved on a state and national level.

Dr. Linda Burke is no stranger to the federal government as her clinical and analytical skills have been used for medical consultation and subject expertise. Even though her medical acumen translated into patient-safety products that were replicated without her consent, this opened the door to a new paradigm shift in the treatment of pregnant women.
