Annie Clark, American College of Nurse-Midwives 2015 Fellowship inductee

The American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) will induct URC senior technical advisor for maternal and child health, Phyllis “Annie” Clark, into its 2015 Fellowship class at the organization’s 60th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC on June 28.

Senior Vice President, Quality & Performance Institute, Dr. M. Rashad Massoud, who directs the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project, offered his congratulations on behalf of URC; the ACNM's recognition of Clark's contributions to the field of midwifery came as no surprise. "Annie’s work speaks for itself: solid science, meticulous implementation, done with passion!"

Clark will be welcomed into the fellowship alongside 20 other distinguished midwives who have demonstrated, leadership, clinical excellence, outstanding scholarship, and professional achievement, within and outside the midwifery field. Fellows are elected based on highly selective and competitive criteria. Induction into the ACNM Fellowship is considered one of the most distinguished honors that a midwife can receive.

Clark is currently based in Costa Rica, providing technical assistance to USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project activities in Uganda and Mali and formerly to USAID-funded projects in Uganda, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Latin America. She has a total of 41 years of experience in maternal/infant health, including 19 years in full scope midwifery, six years in newborn intensive care and public health, and 18 years in international health, providing technical assistance in 16 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Thank you, Annie, for your tireless, passionate work on behalf of women and babies around the world. Congratulations!
