Dr. Shalon Irving was a Black woman with a passion for learning and for applying that learning to breaking down inequities in health systems; her life mantra was: “I see inequity wherever it exists.I am not afraid to call it by name and work hard to eliminate it. I vow to create a better earth.” Even with a dual Ph.D.—in both Sociology and Gerontology, two Masters' degrees, being a lieutenant commander in the US Public Health Service Corps and a distinguished Epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control, Shalon fell victim to the same racial and ethnic health disparities she fought so hard to eliminate. Three weeks after giving birth to her daughter Soleil, Dr. Shalon died from complications of childbirth that were totally preventable.

DSMAP is a growing non-profit committed to health equity for pregnant and postpartum Black women and birthing partners. Founded in 2019 by friends and colleagues of Dr. Shalon Irving, DSMAP’s vision is to develop and promote evidence-based solutions that address health inequities and improve health outcomes for Black women and birthing people.
