The Preeclampsia Foundation is the only national 501(c)(3) not-for-profit patient advocacy organization serving the 5-8% of pregnant women - 300,000 women each year in the U.S. - who are affected by hypertensive disorders of pregnancy such as preeclampsia (formerly known as toxemia), eclampsia and HELLP syndrome. Their mission is to reduce maternal and infant illness and death due to preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome, and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy by providing patient support and education, raising public awareness, catalyzing research and improving healthcare practices.
The Preeclampsia Foundation and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the University of Iowa will be co-hosting a continuing medical education course on October 18, 2013, “Controversies in the Care of Women with Preeclampsia: A National Debate.” For additional information, contact CME Division, University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine at 319-335-8599.
