Webinar: The Role of Anemia in Maternal Mortality

October 26, 2018

This year, two major publications have spawned increased awareness about the role of anemia in maternal mortality.  On October 9th, HemoCue co-sponsored a webinar reviewing the findings of the Daru, et al report discussing this risk in relation to severe anemia in pregnant women.
The webinar was also sponsored by the National WIC Association and was hosted by Dr. Parmi Suchdev, the Associate Director of the Emory Global Health Institute and epidemiologist with the CDC Nutrition Branch.  Dr. Suchdev discussed the importance of regular hemoglobin screening and why accuracy matters.  Over 180 participants heard evidence supporting HemoCue’s mission of never compromising when it comes to lab-quality results at the point of care.

Our next webinar will be in late November, discussing various methodologies related to diabetes screening. In Q1 of 2019, we’ll also host a webinar related to pre-operative anemia screening and patient blood management.
