Committee on Maternal Mortality

Dr. Arsenio C. ComasArsenio C. Comas, MD, committee chair

The District IV Committee on Maternal Mortality met with members of the District V Committee on Maternal Mortality during our joint Annual District Meeting in Charleston, SC. All members of the committees were either present or sent a written report. Donald K. Bryan, MD, District V chair, attended the meeting and was impressed. He congratulated us on our efforts.

The interchange of information was illustrative. Both committees learned from each other. The Canadians found it particularly interesting hearing about our efforts in the US as data collection in their country is more comprehensive. Committee members are looking forward to meeting again at the 2013 ADM in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, potentially with representatives from Districts I and III. I will be contacting all our section representatives in the near future to request data.
