Dr. Muldrow and the Village Health Partnership helped build and design this new delivery room in the Maji district in Southwest Ethiopia.

As a young girl growing up in rural Ethiopia, Dr. Migs Muldrow helped out at a village health clinic run by her father. Muldrow, who lives in Denver, remembers being struck by how many women died or experienced severe complications while giving birth. Decades later, she's working with communities in Ethiopia to make labor and delivery safer. Dr. Muldrow is being honored today for her work at the International Women's Day event in Denver, sponsored by WorldDenver.
