Jenny Morgan aka Hill Jenny (Class of 2007, Senior or the Year award winner), reports that her first year since  graduation was a great success.  After her first year of graduate school in a Midwifery program, she writes of a chance meeting with a luminary of our field:

Hey Mullooly,

I thought you might like to know that I was able to meet Robbie Davis-Floyd (highly regarded anthropologist of Childbirth and Midwifery [on the right]) and we got to talk a lot of anthropology.  She made some great suggestions, such as keeping notes of my experience of learning to be a midwife. She says no one has written anything about that yet. Just wanted to let you know that even though I am knee deep in midwifery, anthropoloy is still a part of my studies. I have attached a photo of her and me at the recent midwifery conference.
