A Panel Discussion and Documentary Film Screening

On Maternal Health & Mortality

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

The panel will feature Susan A. DeJoy, CNM, PhD, Midwifery and Community Health, Baystate Medical Center, and Samantha Radcliffe Lattof, MSc, Project Manager, Maternal Health Task Force Project of the Harvard School of Public Health, Women and Health Initiative.

Following the panel discussion, there will be a screening of the documentary film, No Woman,No Cry, by Christy Turlington Burns. The film, which was premiered on the Oprah Winfrey Network earlier this spring, presents powerful stories of at-risk women from four parts of the world.

The memorial lecture is named in honor of the late Heather Egan Haynes, a Haydenville resident, who died of a severe form of postpartum hemorrhage, in May 2007.  Haynes was a Julliard graduate and dancer who applied her training in movement to the field of occupational therapy. She delighted in caring for children, and participated in many community activities in and around the Pioneer Valley. She was a member of Northampton’s First Churches.
