BIOL 6650: MOMS (Medical Students Outreach to MotherS-to-be and their newborns)

Student Leaders: 
Sophie LaBarre, MD20; Jessi Haddad, MD20; Rachel Hill, MD20; Grace Russo, MD20
Faculty Adviser: 
Dr. Susanna Magge; Dr. Jordan White

The course is designed to heighten the awareness for medical students regarding the clinical care for pregnant women and their newborns. Students increase their knowledge of medical needs as well as the social, economic, and cultural issues that are unique to this population. MOMS is a place where students develop an individual student/patient relationship and follow the medical regiment of a pregnant patient, attend diagnostics tests, doctor's appointment, and the birthing process itself.
