Epidemiologist, CDC Foundation
Category : Alumni
The CDC Maternal Health Team and CDC Foundation have partnered to implement a project to increase U.S. capacity for collecting and using maternal mortality review data related to pregnancy-associated overdose deaths, in order to help develop a national picture of opportunities for eliminating these preventable maternal deaths. The project will provide support and resources to selected maternal mortality review committees, implement enhancements to the CDC developed Maternal Mortality Review Information Application (MMRIA), develop guidance for abstracting, reviewing, and using data on pregnancy-associated overdose deaths, and identify recommended approaches for prevention.
The Epidemiologist works closely with the Lead Epidemiologist, Project Manager, and the Senior Partnerships and Outreach Manager for the Building US Capacity to Review and Prevent Maternal Deaths Initiative to support project activities.
