About the Kansas Maternal Mortality Review Committee
In response to rising national and state trends in maternal and pregnancy-associated deaths, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) established the Kansas Maternal Mortality Review Committee (MMRC) in 2018.
The combined purpose, mission and vision of the Kansas MMRC is to review maternal mortality cases closely to understand all medical and social factors leading to these tragic events. We do this work proudly to help eliminate all preventable maternal deaths in Kansas.
The committee consists of 25-35 geographically diverse members, representing various specialties, facilities, and systems that interact and impact maternal health.
