At Our Bodies Our Blog: ACOG & Rural Health, Double Dose, and Language Matters

March 10, 2009

At Our Bodies Our Blog, I have details from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist’s new committee opinion on rural health – it includes suggestions for physicians and positions on access to reproductive health care. A commenter points out that one way ACOG might support rural women’s health is to support the midwives who would provide care in those areas. Come on over and share your thoughts.

Christine also has a Double Dose with lots of other topics, including environmental exposures and breast cancer, drug labeling, gender-neutral pronouns, domestic violence victims and technology, and more.

This item C links to from Sociological Images definitely caught my attention, on the differences in emphasis between English and Spanish versions of a Kaiser facility’s brochure on pregnancy classes – good discussion in the comments about what Kaiser “meant.”
