Listing #141191

Retired academic couple looking for Fall 2020 or Fall and Spring 2020-2021

We are a reliable, retired couple who have been living in Hawaii since 2018, although David taught at UH Manoa in the early 1980s and I was the first nurse-midwife at Molokai General Hospital 1985-1988. Currently we are caretakers of the Honolulu Friends Meeting near UH Manoa. I have adjunct faculty status at UH Manoa School of Nursing. Our two year post is complete at the end of August. We want to spend one more academic semester or year here while our son and family, now on Guam, will move back to the mainland in 2021 - we will move near them to be closer to our grandchildren.

I am a public health nurse-midwife with a PhD in cultural anthropology. My area of clinical expertise is maternity nursing, global midwifery, and interprofessional practice. My research program is focused upon the improvement of maternal-newborn health globally, using anthropological and participatory methods. From 2008-2011, I conducted a community- based participatory research study in the Dominican Republic, supported by the National Institute of Nursing, which led to a team- based, interprofessional, and community action project for improved maternal care. Previously a Peace Corps nurse in Guatemala, much of my practice and research has been in Latin America or with Latinix populations in the US. Also, I collaborate with the Center for Black Women’s Wellness in Atlanta in CBPR projects, and in 2013 along with computer scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology, we piloted the use of mobile phones to adhere to reproductive health recommendations among mothers in the Healthy Start program. This work was supported through the Atlanta Clinical and Translational Science Institute of the NIH. Since 2004, I have been a central partner in AsociaciÓn ADAMES, a non-profit association in the Dominican Republic that works with nurses and community leaders to improve maternal health. I have also led trips of Emory student nurses to the Dominican Republic, as well as advised interdisciplinary global field scholars in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Uruguay. Many of the scholarly papers from our work there are co-authored with my students. I am the co-chair (with Dr. Lorena Binfa of the University of Chile, where I was a Fulbright Scholar in 2015) of the virtual midwifery research subcommittee in Latin America within the Global Alliance of Nurses and Midwives. I am a life member and Fellow of the American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM), and I serve in their global health division. Also, I serve on the national task force of the ACNM to build diversity and inclusion in the midwifery workforce. I sit on the governance committee of Sigma Theta Tau International, and the Board of the Council of Nurses in Anthropology of the American Anthropological Association. I am certified by the United States Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality as a master trainer in the TeamSTEPPS ® curriculum. In 2013, I received the Emory Williams Distinguished Teaching Award. I retired from Emory in 2018 and I am retired as a Clinical Professor Emerita.
