“The integration of patients’ lived experience into quality improvement teams is critical to the success of our efforts to decrease preventable maternal morbidity and mortality in the U.S.,” said AIM Senior Director at ACOG, Christie Allen

“Partnering with AIM is an important milestone to amplify the patient voice for maternal healthcare improvements here in the United States,” said Nicole Purnell, Program Director of MoMMA's Voices. “Most importantly, the AIM COL program focuses on the inclusion of lower-resourced communities and special populations who we know are falling through the cracks of maternal healthcare in order to address healthcare disparities.”
