Committee Members

The obstetric subcommittee was re-launched in 2019 with the goal of bringing obstetric anesthesiologists together to collaborate on quality improvement (QI) areas as they relate to patients undergoing obstetric anesthesia care.  This subcommittee is open to anyone who is interested in participating, however, measure review and votes are limited to obstetric QI champions who practice at institutions actively participating in MPOG.
