PeriGen Knowledge Summit to Address Issues in Maternal Healthcare
Date:4/16/2010

Despite recent reports that show improved maternal healthcare worldwide, Amnesty International and The Lancet have found the standard of care dropping in the United States. PeriGen’s Knowledge Summit’s speakers will discuss why, and what can be done to correct this problem.

Washingtion, DC (Vocus) April 16, 2010 -- A new study in Lancet claims that maternal mortality rates around the world are going down. That should be good news in the debate over U.S. healthcare costs, except that the U.S. has an appalling record for maternal and infant mortality.

Amnesty International issued its own condemnation of U.S. maternity care, citing an infant mortality rate far above countries with fewer doctors, outdated technologies and primitive pre-natal care.

How can that be?
Come hear for yourself at the maternal-fetal medicine knowledge summit next Thursday, April 22 and Friday, April 23 at the Fairfax Embassy Row, 2100 Massachusetts Ave., N.W. The agenda for these meetings will address the maternal fetal medicine state of crisis: global and national maternity care; trends in healthcare information technology; and healthcare reform.
