Lessons & Memories: Reflections on my time with Save the Mothers

It has been a sincere pleasure to lead Save the Mothers for the past three years. Working to end preventable maternal and child death with my colleagues and the Master of Public Health Leadership Alumni was very satisfying. Now my journey with STM has come to an end.
