SARAH VERBIEST

Looking Forward , Sarah Verbiest, founder of Every Woman Southeast, reflects on the new year and what it holds.

We still can’t believe that we had almost 300 people listen in to our webinar last week on Interconception Health for High-Risk moms. The response to this topic and to the webinar series has been wonderful. Clearly there is a significant interest in sharing ideas and practices in providing services and support to this important and under-served population.

If you missed the webinar, you can see all the slides on the EveryWoman Southeast website. Feel free to email or call the speakers directly if you have questions about their presentations. We’d also love to hear from you if you’ve been working with these moms. Please email Sarah at sarahv@med.unc.edu.

A special shout out to our wonderful speakers – especially Juanita Graham from Mississippi who called in while snowed in at home with her power set to go out. Now that is dedication!

We’re currently working with the NC Institute for Public Health and the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health to launch a free 6 part series that focuses on integrative community approaches to optimizing mental and physical health among adolescents and women of reproductive age. The Women’s Integrated Systems of Health (WISH) project has information about their work and the series on our website. Just click on Initiatives and then WISH.

In the meantime, don’t forget to register for the 3rd National Summit on Preconception Health and sign up for our listserv.
