About Jenny Foster RN/MPH/CNM/PhD

I am a nurse-midwife and an anthropologist, and my passion is improving the health of women and their babies globally. I walk on the borders of different disciplines: nursing, midwifery, anthropology, public health. Much of the work I have done globally has been in Latin America or the Caribbean.

Welcome to the wordpress site for Birth and Global Health! This site is new for me, so I will be learning as we go along. The main purpose of this site is to allow you to blog your responses to the readings and/or discussions that we are having in class. You may blog as often as you like, but you must enter a blog at least five times during the semester, and respond five times to a blog.
