Maternal Health Equity Program Manager
Center for Black Women’s Wellness
Asha Immanuelle is a community-based participatory researcher, birth equity advocate, and community-clinical integration champion who believes there is no reason to accept the status quo in maternal and infant health outcomes in our nation. After 23 years of perinatal nursing and obstetrical case management, Asha's passions grew toward a data-driven, population health perspective. She aims to build a more responsive and respectful maternity care continuum and to transform perinatal health outcomes through clinical workflow redesign, alternative payment models, and cross-sector collaboration. In 2020 Asha earned her master's degree in Applied Science in Population Health Management from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to better understand the multi-sectoral influences on health and the driving force behind maternal health disparities in the social determinants of health. Currently, Asha serves as a Maternal Health Equity Program Manager at the Center for Black Women's Wellness (CBWW) in Atlanta, GA, which has a 30-year legacy of ensuring that women and families access quality health care and health education. Additionally, she is a Population Health Advisor & Community Liaison at the Gravity Project, which seeks to build consensus-driven standards to capture and exchange social risk data across care settings to meet patient needs holistically. Asha serves on the Georgia Maternal Mortality Review Committee and the ECHO Core Team organized by the Georgia Department of Health to improve maternal health outcomes within the state, as well as the national Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) committee of the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN).
