Marilyn Wong, MD, MPH

Coordinator, Mothers-to-Mothers Project

The presentation will explore the devastating forces within a "perfect storm" that is confronting new mothers in the United States: racism, sexism, individualism, the abandonment of traditional wisdom, and a for-profit health care system.  


This lecture is the second in a series hosted by an experimental class - Ethnic Studies 199/ Asian American Studies 199: Traditional Postpartum Wisdom: Implications for Contemporary Postpartum Justice.  Come join us.  Public welcome.
