Community Engagement

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Medical College of Wisconsin has an ongoing commitment to establish and maintain projects that extend to the surrounding local and global community. Service and community are inherently related, thus our mission is to integrate community engagement, education, and physician specialties to address the interests and needs of our community neighbors, especially as they relate to women and children’s health.
