Meet one of AMWA's Anne C. Carter Global Health Fellows
Rachel McDiehl is a fourth year medical student at Emory University School of Medicine and a second year AMWA Anne C. Carter Global Health Fellow. She recently completed a year in Kampala, Uganda where she worked with local and US mentors on a variety of maternal health projects. While in Uganda, she analyzed breastfeeding and infant outcomes in the setting of postpartum long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) implants, explored the relationship between stillbirths and antenatal care, and facilitated the roll-out an SMS based prenatal education curriculum, called SMS Maama. Rachel is looking forward to pursuing a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology following completion of her final year of medical school.
