Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been a Certified Nurse-Midwive since 2001 and am involved in the education of American trained midwives. In 1998 I worked in India for a summer training traditional birth attendants. The primary focus of my MPH involves maternal mortality and morbidity. I sit on a committee for the Colorado Department of Public Health on maternal mortality/morbidity and am on an interdisciplinary workgroup with ACNM/CDC/ACOG to improve US maternal mortality/morbidity outcomes.
