    T. Leroy Jefferson Medical Society (TLJMS) is a professional organization that focuses on helping underserved populations in our community. TLJMS provides health education programs, youth mentoring programs, speakers on health issues, as well as health fair medical screenings to school children and adults. As dedicated minority healthcare professionals, TLJMS actively works together to improve health and wellness, access to quality care, and academic and career opportunities for underserved populations. TLJMS brings the healthcare needs of the community to the forefront and for this special speaker series session will focus on supporting building provider’s knowledge on high-risk pregnancy.

    Some pregnancies become high-risk as they progress, while some women are at increased risk for complications even before they get pregnant for a variety of reasons. A high-risk pregnancy is one that threatens the health or life of the mother or her fetus. It often requires specialized care from specially trained providers.

    Problems during pregnancy may include physical and mental conditions that affect the health of the mother or the baby. These problems can be caused by or exacerbated by being pregnant, the social determinants of health, adverse childhood experiences, race, and many other social and environmental variables. Progression of these problems may harm the mother or her baby.  TLJMS will share on support for serving families with a high-risk pregnancy and also discuss at reproductive justice: the mental, physical, social, economic, and political wellbeing of females. People of color have unique experiences with sexual rights, reproductive health, and bodily integrity. This session highlights specific issues that every health provider should know.

    Learning Objectives:

    At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

    • Regularly examine own thoughts, feelings, strengths, and growth areas; discuss issues, concerns, actions to take with supervisor, consultants or peers; remain open and curious
    • Consult regularly with supervisor, consultants, peers to understand own capacities and needs, as well as the capacities and needs of families
    • Use reflective practice throughout their work with infants, young children and families to understand own emotional response to infant/family work and to recognize areas for professional and/or personal development.

    Social factors, both contextual (e.g., poverty, housing, education) and interpersonal (e.g., racism, social support, stigma) are important contributors to health outcomes for all people. With an infant mental health lens- social determinants of health may be describes as access to prenatal or postnatal care, the level of health care services, healthy child development, adverse childhood experiences, racism, trauma, family economic stability, family educational level, social support, housing, and community.  Understanding how these factors influence health, both individually and in combination, can lead to the development and implementation of more effective health promotion programs and policies.

    This course also helps learners understand which health and illness are determined by social and economic determinants. Some questions explored include: How should we conceptualize health and risk factors in Palm Beach County? What do people need to have or do to be healthy in Palm Beach County regarding infant mental health? What processes, structures, and situations are likely to be harmful to health for families in Palm Beach County? What are the social and economic conditions that influence all of the above?

    The course is a collaboration of CSCPBC and TLJMS for a special training Symposium Series on present research and resources in support of diverse families and providers growth.

    Healthcare and Science Stars of Tomorrow Career Symposium is an annual event that attracts more than 1,000 diverse students from more than 25 schools in Palm Beach, Okeechobee, and Martin Counties. Our keynote speaker this year is Dr. William McDade.


    As part of our efforts to promote science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programming in our community, we created the Symposium for students to come together with numerous healthcare professionals and academic institution representatives and explore career development through lectures, exhibits, live demonstrations, and multimedia sources. Attracting young people from traditionally underrepresented populations to STEAM careers is critical to closing the achievement gap and eradicating the disparity in academic performance between disadvantaged and privileged students.

    During the event, students participate in organized rotations and information sessions that allow them to gain insight from professionals on pursuing careers in various fields in healthcare and the sciences. Participating professionals include pharmacists, physicians, nurses, nuclear medicine technologists, respiratory therapists, anesthesia assistants, epidemiologists, and biologists.

    The Symposium typically features dozens of exhibitors from Keiser University, Max Planck Florida Institute of Neuroscience, Palm Beach State College, Nova Southeastern University, Kindred Hospital, Palms West Hospital, The Scripps Research Institute, and other organizations.

    In the past, we have also featured keynote speakers, such as Dr. Cato Laurencin, MD, PhD, former Dean and Vice President of the University of Connecticut Health Science Center/School of Medicine.
