Martha May Eliot was an amazing woman devoted to public health and maternal and child health. Her work and research explored issues at the heart of social medicine. In 1964, the American Public Health Association established the Martha May Eliot Award to bring recognition to the field of maternal and child health and to honor extraordinary health service to mothers and children. Dr. Eliot was an amazing woman and an inspiration to those of us in MCH. If you want to feel inspired and honored to be part of this MCH legacy, take a listen to Ashley’s presentation.
