AIM Collaborative Conference

Push for Change

Thank you to everyone who made the first AIM Collaborative Conference a success! To learn more about AIM Collaborative or stay informed about future conferences subscribe to the AIM newsletter by contacting us.

This year’s conference theme, Push for Change, focused on the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM)’s maternal hypertension bundle. Attendees learned about the newest evidence and strategies for the timely treatment of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and the integration of health equity into patient care. The conference featured a diverse group of exhibitors, raffle prizes, breakfast, a luncheon, and an opportunity to network with our expert speakers and colleagues from across the state.
