In this episode, we address the topic of maternal and fetal health with Dr. Kecia Gaither, a double board-certified physician in Ob/Gyn and Maternal Fetal Medicine and a champion of closing the gap in poor pregnancy outcomes for women of color. Dr. Gaither discusses some of the causes for this discrepancy and offers solutions for both patients and providers. Dr. Gaither received her BA in Biology from Barnard College, and her MD from SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse. She completed her Ob/Gyn residency at Riverside Regional Medical Center, a subsidiary of The Medical College of Virginia and completed her Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship at The University of Medicine and Dentistry-Rutgers in Newark NJ. Dr. Gaither earned her MPH in Health Policy and Management from Columbia University and completed her dual MS/MBA degree in Healthcare Policy and Research/Healthcare Leadership from Cornell SC Johnson School of Business. She has recently been named a Fellow for the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). A perinatal consultant and womens’ health expert, Gaither’s expertise is grounded in both research and her professional experience in caring for women with multiple medical/surgical/fetal conditions in pregnancy. In her current role, Dr. Gaither serves as the Director of Perinatal Services/Director of Maternal Fetal Medicine for NYC Health+ Hospitals/Lincoln in the Bronx. Dr. Gaither is also an Associate Professor of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology with Cornell Weill Medicine.
