October 7, 2017 @ 12:00 pm EDT - 1:00 pm EDT
This “reflections” session will reflect on many of the key messages from the sessions shared during FNU’s 2017 Virtual Event for National Midwifery Week. Are you wondering “How can I make a difference?” or “What steps can I take to make a change?” Join us as we reflect on some of the key take-aways from the week and the action steps that you can take as a nurse-midwife or future nurse-midwife to truly make a difference in maternity and primary care.
The session video will be available on this page at the scheduled date and time.
