Michelle ClausenCertified Nurse-Midwife, GW alumna and Ph.D. Student in Nursing
Dr. Tarnisha Hemphill, GW Assistant Professor of Nursing

Moderated by:

Dr. Dwayne Kwaysee Wright, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiatives at GSEHD and GW Assistant Professor of Higher Education Administration

The 2022 U.S. Supreme Court decision Dobbs v. Jackson, which overturned Roe v. Wade, has profound implications for the pedagogy, policy, and practice of health sciences and midwifery.

Join the George Washington University School of Nursing and Graduate School of Education and Human Development as we explore the history of midwifery, how its skills and traditions have been passed down, and the case's impact on the future of midwifery education and work. We will also discuss the Dobbs' effect on assisted reproductive technology (ART) and in vitro fertilization (IVF), as well as the definition of "personhood."
