Karen A. Scott, MD, MPH, FACOG

SAN FRANCISCO, CA

Topic: Choosing Courage Over Comfort: Using Reproductive Justice to Move Us from Bias and Blame to Accountability and Autonomy

Dr. Karen A. Scott, MD, MPH, FACOG, is a Reproductive. Justice (RJ) informed sexual, reproductive, and perinatal (SRP) epidemiologist and obstetric hospitalist whose work integrates the social sciences and humanities into participatory health services and quality improvement (QI) research.  Currently, Dr. Scott is an assistant adjunct professor in the Family Health Care Nursing Department at the University of California San Francisco (USCF), and a 2018-2019 Women's Policy Institute State Fellow in Reproductive Justice with the Women's Foundation of California. In September, she joined the UCSF Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences as an Associate Professor and Academic OBGYN Hospitalist.
 
As a "dissident, disruptive, and recovering" board certified OBGYN and critical public health scholar,  her work examines interventions to eliminate and reduce disparities and inequities in SRP health services provision, through the integration of a Black feminist and Reproductive Justice (RJ) Praxis , in the afterlife of slavery and passage of the Congressional Act of 1807 (which took effect in 1808, prohibiting further participation of the United States in the slave trade.). A Black feminist-RJ Praxis informs the ethical considerations, theoretical concepts, methods, and methodologies in her research, practice, pedagogy, and policy analysis. Her primary goal is to develop a program of participatory justice and equity-based research to examine the association between structural gendered racism and clinical cognition, assessment, diagnosis, provision of services, and shared decision-making processes during hospital based SRP services. Her participatory QI research characterizes the structural, sociocultural, and clinical constructions of reproduction, pregnancy, labor, and birth within hospitals and health systems, through the voices, lived experiences, and scholarship of Black women, mothers, and birthing people. A secondary goal is to examine the provision of health services in the antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum units as sites through which gendered racism and obstetric racism can be understood within patient-clinician, patient-system, and community-system interactions, across time, place, and levels of power.
