OPPORTUNITIES: Recruitment for 2 committees


Maternal Mortality Review Committee: Application for Membership
The Maternal Mortality Prevention Program at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is seeking professionals and community members to serve on the Maternal Mortality Review Committee (MMRC), formalized by the Maternal Mortality Prevention Act in 2019. The MMRC reviews de-identified cases of maternal deaths in Colorado, identifies the causes of maternal mortality, and develops recommendations to address preventable maternal deaths and improve the health and well-being of pregnant and postpartum people in Colorado.

All applicants must submit this completed application form, including current resume/curriculum vitae and three references, by August 15, 2019

Applicants who represent communities that are diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, immigration status, English proficiency, income, wealth, and geographic region of the state, as well as those who are affected by higher rates of maternal mortality and by a lack of access to the full scope of maternity care health services, are strongly encouraged to apply. Members will represent diverse communities and a variety of clinical, forensic, psycho-social, and public health specializations and community perspectives.

Please share this with your networks.
