White published an edited volume Global Case Studies
in Maternal and Child Health (Jones and Bartlett Learning, 2013) this
winter. The book is designed for students in public health, nursing, medicine,
and allied health professions.
“The book presents structured case studies
of community-based programs in maternal and child health from around the world,”
White said. “These studies present real-life ethical, practical and theoretical
challenges that give students models for their present and future work.”
Inspiration for the book came from White serving as the principal
investigator for “Factors influencing choice of maternity services in Njeru,
Uganda.” That study, which concluded in 2010, was a follow-up to her 5-year Safe
Motherhood project with the community of Njeru that included the College of Nursing.
