BIOL 6650: Medical Students Outreach to Mothers to Be (MOMS)

Student Leaders: 
Rachel Dunlap, MD16;  Hannah Levavi, MD16; Burton Shen, MD16
Faculty Adviser: 
Dr. J. Taylor

The course is designed to heighten the awareness for medical students regarding the clinical care for pregnant women and their newborns. Students increase their knowledge of medical needs as well as the social, economic, and cultural issues that are unique to this population. MOMS is a place where students develop an individual student/patient relationship and follow the medical regiment of a pregnant patient, attend diagnostics tests, doctor's appointment, and the birthing process itself.
