As part of its Martin Luther King Day celebration, Christiana Care Health System will host keynote speaker Charles Johnson who will share the tragic story of his wife Kira’s death due to complications following a routine scheduled C-section.

After the sudden passing of his wife, Charles has dedicated his life mission to launching the 4Kira4Moms Foundation, a nonprofit committed to reducing the maternal mortality rate and raising awareness about the maternal death crisis in the United States where we have over 1,200 women die annually. Currently, 4Kira4Moms is working closely with congressional legislators to create legislation to mandate health care policies nationwide that will protect mothers and babies. In addition, they are working with other organizations, like Moms Rising, to bring voice to preventable deaths in childbirth and pregnancies.
