Alumni Events 2007

By: Denise Barrett (Insert Pic of Denise)

The Alumni Relations Office is busy planning events for our graduates all across the country. Receptions will be held at the ACNM Annual Meeting in Chicago, the AANP Annual meeting in Indianapolis, and the AABC Annual meeting in Anchorage, Alaska!

The Alumni Relations Office is working to provide more opportunities for our alumni to stay connected to Frontier and to each other. The first edition of the Alumni Magazine was mailed in March. Visit http://www.midwives.org/alumni.asp?id=201&pid=106 to view the magazine online. Always check the website for the latest news and events postings. Finally, alumni are encouraged to plan events for their classes or their region. The Reunion Program has been established to provide some assistance to alumni wishing to plan Frontier events on or off campus. Details on this program are also available on the web.

We always love to hear from students and alumni. Call the Alumni Relations Office at 859-253-3637 ext. 5014 if you have questions or suggestions!

Jessie Anderson will begin practicing full-scope midwifery in March, 2007. I was a CNEP student in Class 34/7, and graduated in July 2004. I am very excited to begin practicing with Rebecca Cohen, MD, in Jeffersonville, Indiana. She is a FP doctor who I originally met at the Birth Center Conference in 2001 in Nashville. Our ultimate goal is to open a birth center.

Holly Powell Kennedy, CNM, PhD, FACNM (Frontier 1985) has been selected as a 2007/2008 Fulbright Scholar. Dr. Kennedy will be at King’s College London from January – June 2008 conducting research on midwifery practices that support optimal/normal birth. She will also be exploring the issues of “optimal” birth with numerous midwives. As the co-chair of the Research Standing Committee of the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM), Dr. Kennedy will be working with the Scientific Program Planning Committee in the lead up to the ICM Congress in Glasgow, Scotland June 1-5, 2008. Dr. Kennedy is Associate Professor and Coordinator, Nurse-Midwifery Specialty at University of California San Francisco (UCSF).
