Global Maternal Healthcare: A Study in Cultural Competency

In this episode, we speak with two recent graduate students from the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George Washington University here in Washington, DC,  Prerna Balasundaram and Christina Parker, about their ongoing research on cultural competency in maternal global healthcare.

As part of their end-of-degree capstone project, Prerna and Christina are researching how U.S. doctors are being prepared to provide maternal healthcare in foreign countries and in unfamiliar cultures. Today we’ll talk with them to learn more about this topic, including the policy recommendations emerging from their research.
