Mary Coley Scholarship
I’m committed to lowering disparities in maternal and infant health for all, and the devastating reality is that race is still a determining factor on whether one has a healthy birth and baby in this country and worldwide.
The Mary Coley Scholarship is a financial need-based scholarship available for mothers of color who want either birth or postpartum care. Mary Coley was a lay midwife and advocate for black health in Georgia. In honor of her legacy, I want to support mothers of color to still be able to experience the birth of their dreams and receive adequate postpartum care.
