Putting It All Together #2

December 27th, 2021

This week on the show, I sit down to put the four recent maternal/child health podcasts into perspective. How are these four experts tied together? We, again, examine the basic underpinnings of maternal health risks through the eyes of these thought leaders in preparation for the next series of discussions. Laying important foundations, to build our health literacy upon, is critical in my mind.

This show is also a way for the folks that are “on the go” to get a summary of the podcasts for their benefit.

Enjoy,
Dr. M
