This year, the conference features key note speaker Lisa A. Miller, CNM, JD founder of Perinatal Risk Management and Education Services (PREMES). Ms. Miller, a certified nurse-midwife for more than 30 years and an attorney since 1990, has a unique understanding of the impact of law on medicine and nursing. With this unique perspective, she will speak on legal issues, risk reduction and fetal monitoring.

Several renowned physicians will also present during the two-day event including Dr. David Adair, Dr. Frederick Bossert, Dr. Stephen Depasquale and many others. Topics include postpartum hemorrhage, amniotic fluid embolism, shoulder dystocia, preeclampsia and more. Simulation labs are scheduled for the second day of the conference after morning lectures.

“Cutting edge technology and techniques should not be exclusive to the ones doing it, but rather should disseminated to the masses to coordinate a standard and unified provision of care,” said Dr. Adair, provider and co-founder of Regional Obstetrical Consultants.

The 5th annual Erlanger OBGYN Conference is Thursday, March 8, and Friday, March 9, at The Colonnade Center in Ringgold.
