CSW 58 Mother’s Legacy Maternal Mortality Panel

Our panel discussion held on Tuesday, March 11th was a big success.  We had a full house and a great Q&A session. 

Panelist Matt Stearmer discussed maternal mortality rates and the importance of honoring mothers who have died in childbirth with a mother’s monument.  Panelist Alicia Giralt discussed her research on maternal mortality in Guatemala including the causes and effects of the problem. Substitute panelists Rebecca Densley and Rachel Densley read a statement about implementing new technology in developing areas to help decrease maternal mortality. 

The event was moderated by our president, Afton Buetler.
