Honoring Midwives PhotoJoin us to honor Tom Lloyd, M.S., C.N.M., as he reflects on his career as a nurse-midwife thus far. Tom currently works with the OB/Gyn Generalist Practice at the Center for Women's Health and has previously worked as faculty at OHSU's Nurse-Midwifery program. He spent a formative first year as a nurse-midwife working in the county clinics of Dade County in Florida at Jackson Memorial Hospital. After this time, he returned to University of Utah, his alma mater, and soon made his way to Oregon. Tom was pivotal in starting the midwifery service at Kaiser Permanente in Portland,where he worked for 20 years. In addition, he was the first two-term Chair of the Oregon ACNM Affiliate and was instrumental in obtaining hospital privileges for CNMs in Oregon.Tom's presentation will be an opportunity to share wisdom learned during his extensive experience as a nurse-midwife, as well as a chance to address questions from the audience.
