This week the Katee, Corbin, and Dave chat about two papers which discuss migrant women’s health outcomes and the experiences of Somali refugee mother’s birth experiences in Norway and Minnesota. We talk about the intersection of culture and health and how values influence health systems.

Maternal Mortality – A close call (with Amy Dean)



A few months ago, a listener named Amy Dean wrote in after our maternal mortality episode to tell us her story. We asked her to join us and share her experience and current advocacy efforts for other patients like her. We are so happy she called in and chatted with us!
