Common Ground Meeting

Title: Common Ground Meeting
Location: Central Lutheran Church 1820 NE 21st Ave Portland Or
Description: The upcoming Common Ground event on the topic of out of hospital birth outcomes in Oregon has been rescheduled to a NEW date: Friday, 3/21/14. We apologize for any inconveniences this creates, especially as we have already rescheduled once. This change is in response to local CNM leaders who are already committed to a midwifery self-care retreat the weekend of the 7th yet strongly wanted to participate in the discussion. Our presenters, Missy Cheney and Silke Akerson, graciously agreed to change their plans once again to accommodate this request.

I’m excited that our event has generated so much interest that everyone wants to make sure they can be there! I’m looking forward to seeing you all, and again, my apologies for the multiple changes.

Potluck and presentation of OR & MANA out of hospital stats by Missy Cheney, and review of OMC Quality Improvement efforts by Silke Akerson. Community discussion to follow presentations.
