Highlighting PowerMom FIRST: a study on systemic racism and maternal health outcomes
What is PowerMom FIRST?
PowerMom FIRST stands for Fighting Inequity and Racism with Supportive Technology. The PowerMom FIRST study is a sub-study within the PowerMom Research Platform to understand whether there is a relationship between systemic racism and maternal health outcomes. To explore these outcomes, participants in PowerMom FIRST will be provided with a free Fitbit Luxe wearable sensor and a Fitbit Scale. Sensors are used to monitor key health metrics (like heart rate and weight) and behavioral metrics (like activity and sleep) over time. Participants will be expected to use these devices regularly and complete a series of surveys from their smartphone.

If you decide to join, you will be in the PowerMom FIRST sub-study from the first or second trimester of pregnancy and up until your baby is born.
