Black maternal mortality expert available for interview following death of former Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader Krystal Anderson

Newswise — Last month, former Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader Krystal Anderson died from complications related to  childbirth. Her story is too common — the U.S. has the highest mortality rate of any high-income country, and Black women are three times more likely to die from pregnancy complications than white women.

Ochsner expert Dr. Veronica Gillispie-Bell — an obstetrician and gynecologist, the medical director of Louisiana’s state maternal mortality review committee,  and medical director of the Minimally Invasive Center for the Treatment of Uterine Fibroids – is an expert in Black maternal health. She has specific interest in uterine fibroids, a condition afflicting Krystal Anderson. She can discuss the condition and also the factors that contribute to disparities in pregnancy-related deaths.
