  • Anne Baber Wallis, MHS, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health, published an editorial in the December 2018 issue of the African Journal of Reproductive Health, on meeting international goals to reduce maternal, neonatal, and child mortality in 15 West African nations.
