Posted by Dan Blackman on 9 March 2012
Robert is the founder and executive director of MaterCare International, and an emeritus Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada, a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists of Canada, a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists of England, and has a Masters degree in International Health from Harvard University.
Robert has done, and is doing, some amazing things to help mothers and babies all over the world. Check out the MaterCare website for examples of where they work and what they're doing.
Robert and his team have just built a hospital especially for pregnant mothers and newborns in a remote part of Kenya. We wish Rob all the best, and look forward to his updates when he returns to speak in London.
We're very lucky to have Robert as our headline speaker at our forthcoming conference "Abortion or Maternal Health: what should the British government be funding in developing countries?" Tuesday 20 March 2012, London.
This is an event not to be missed. Get booking!
