ACNM past president's study on midwifery research priorities for maternal and newborn health published in The Lancet Global Health
Mon, 26 Sep 2016

Prioritizing research into midwifery — particularly on family planning, preterm births, and high-quality care — can help address these unacceptably high rates of death for newborn children and women giving birth, according to a study led by Dr. Holly Powell Kennedy, PhD, CNM, FACNM, FAAN, executive dean of the Yale School of Nursing and a past president of ACNM, and published in The Lancet Global Health.
