Dr. Blair Wylie will present the MFM Fellow Lecture: Climate-related Exposures and Pregnancy Health: A Focus on Heat and Diagnosing Heat-related Illness.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the impact of climate change on the health of pregnant individuals and their pregnancies.
  • Characterize the unequal burden of climate change among certain populations in the US and internationally and how this contributes to widening perinatal inequities.
  • Recognize the specific risks associated with acute heat exposure, how to diagnose heat-related illnesses, and how their presentation mimics routine pregnancy complications.

The 50-minute didactic lecture is followed by 10-15 minutes of live Q&A.

The MFM Fellow Lecture Series supports obstetric clinicians and complements MFM fellowship programs with a twice-monthly web lecture series by leaders in MFM, ultrasound, research, neonatology, and genetics.
