Nancy L.Kerr and Mark Hauswald are both physicians who primarily do global health work. Mark is an emergency physician who has spent most of his career in academics (his full title is Mark Hauswald MS, MD / Professor of Emergency Medicine / Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs and Patient Safety Emeritus / Director of Global Health Programs / Co-Director of PAHO/WHO Collaborating Center for the Dissemination of Community-Oriented, Problem-Based Education / University of New Mexico, Health Sciences Center). Nancy spent most of her career in clinical practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology (and delivered 10, 000 babies). She also serves as a clinical faculty member in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of New Mexico. In 2006 we decided a change was in order and we went to London and did diplomas in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Nancy then promptly did a MPH at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Our primary interest is where Obstetrics and Emergency care intersect – we invented a device to control postpartum bleeding – but we are interested and active in much more. Other major subjects we target are disaster medicine, point of care ultrasound, emergency transport, preeclampsia, and medication fidelity.
