For our June Collaboratory, to honor Father’s Day, we are sharing the research priorities of Black and Latinx fathers in San Francisco, Oakland, and Fresno.

By sharing these detailed lists of unanswered pregnancy and birth questions, as well as the process of co-creating these lists, we are calling on funders, researchers, as well as social and clinical providers to refocus their work to include the input of those most impacted by preterm birth.
