Are you achieving your full practice potential? California laws have changed DRAMATICALLY in recent years, and we're strategically positioned to make a huge impact on the culture of birth and reproductive healthcare on a grand scale! Join CNMA President Paris Maloof-Bury at the CNMA Annual Meeting on November 6 as we explore your scope, skills, and synergistic potential under the current statute. If you can envision it, together we can create it! The future is in our birth-working, baby-catching, advocating, health-promoting, justice-seeking, space-holding, choice-honoring, person-empowering hands.
We believe that every birthing person deserves a safe, gentle birth, and that re-diversifying the midwifery workforce is a key factor to achieving birth equity. Want to find out how you can play a part in this important work? During this session on Mentoring and the Imperative of Midwifery Workforce Diversity, we'll learn from Asmara Gebre, Kim Dau, and Angela Sojobi about the Midwifery Mentoring and Belonging Program, as we hone our vision and strategize to create a truly equitable and safe culture of birth.
Midwives Save Lives in all kinds of situations! Are you ready to help your patient prevent HIV in conception, pregnancy, and lactation? Join us as we explore PrEP and nPEP for HIV prevention: its effectiveness, its safety, when it's appropriate to prescribe, how to get the medications paid for, and who to contact when you have questions. If you have barriers, Alison Young, CNM has solutions!
