CIMS Grassroots Advocates Committee Ambassador Trainings

“Interested in gathering obstetric intervention rates for the hospitals and birth centers in your area?”

Become a GAC STATS Ambassador and work with us to collect obstetric intervention data at the facility level for all 50 states. The public has the right to know what is happening in our hospitals. Pregnant women have the right to know what to expect from the hospitals and birth centers in their communities in order to determine which health care facility will best service their needs. You can help us get this vital information out to the public by becoming a GAC STAT Ambassador. We will provide you with the support, tools and guidance you will need to connect with the right people in your state, access the data and get the data out to the public. Join a GAC STAT Training and help increase women’s access to this important information.

“Want to help spread the word in your community about the national launch of The Birth Survey?”

Join the GAC Marketing Ambassadors and help us to make The Birth Survey a success in your area. We’ll provide you with marketing tools and materials designed to engage the public and generate excitement around The Birth Survey. Learn about grassroots marketing efforts, creative community based initiatives, and internet based strategies that will help you get the word out and insure that The Birth Survey will thrive in your area.
