Calling all midwives!
I am running for Secretary of the ACNM Board of Directors, as is another great candidate, and there are also elections for President-Elect, Region II Representative, Region V Representative, and Nominating Committee. Check out all of the candidates here!
My intention in running for leadership is to bring forward the work of supporting student-to-graduate transition, utilizing social and new media platforms to mobilize these groups and the people we serve, as well as promoting the work of midwifery care in underserved populations. And, obviously, feminism, reproductive justice, international midwifery, etc. – pretty much everything I write about on this site is part and parcel of my soap box
