Opening Discussion Topic:
In the richest nation in the world, one area where the U.S. consistently falls behind is maternal health – particularly for moms of color. Studies and experience have proven that moms and babies are most vulnerable from pregnancy through the baby’s first birthday. That’s why (LA Healthcare Member) Melissa Hanna’s Mahmee developed a clinician-inspired platform that provides moms and their sponsoring clinics, systems, and health professionals with the essential elements for care and collaboration that ensures every mom and baby can access the personalized support and information they need for a healthy start. Blending high-tech with high-touch, telehealth with cross-practice collaboration, Mahmee’s care managers and coaches provide moms with a go-to team for their personalized support and education.
We’ll open the ZOOM Table with Melissa’s presentation, including your suggestions for groups that might be appropriate sponsors, partners, collaborators, and/or investors in Mahmee’s innovative approach to delivering prenatal and post-natal care.
Following the break, we’ll look to hear “What’s Up?” in your healthcare sector.
Before co-founding Mahmee, with her mother, a nationally respected nurse educator and a leading voice for breast-feeding support, Melissa Hanna, JD, worked in operations and strategy at startups in healthcare, digital media, education, and consumer goods. She also served as Assistant Director of the Entrepreneurship Center at Columbia Business School. Scholastically, she earned an MBA from the Drucker School at Claremont, and her JD from Southwestern. Among many other honors, she was named to Inc‘s “2019 Female Founders 100” list.
