“Freedom from drain” and the Maternal-Infant Health Outreach Worker Project (MIHOW)

Barbara Clinton shares about the program she started as an appendage of the Student Health Coalition (SHC), known as the Maternal-Infant Health Outreach Worker Project (MIHOW). The largest and most renowned of the SHC’s various outgrowths, this program sought to draw on the talent of local hard-working, intelligent women to further support women’s health and preventative care in marginalized communities. Barbara characterizes their “freedom from drain” as an essential quality to such work.

  1. As I recall MIHOW was started before Barbara came to the Center. The original director was named Marah but her last name won’t come to me. Barbara was the second director.
