MANA CAM 2017 Speaker
Marit L. Bovbjerg, PhD, MS, HBM, is a reproductive and health services epidemiologist at Oregon State University, the Director of Data Quality for the MANA DOR, and a home birth mom. She has been teaching statistics and research methods to clinicians for more than 15 years, and particularly enjoys teaching midwives because then all of the examples can be birth-related. She lives in rural Oregon with her husband and three (well, two, since one’s in college) children. She spends her non-work time doing laundry, driving people places, gardening, cooking, cleaning up messes she did not make, saying “no, you can’t wear that,” and practicing her calm demeanor in the face of teenaged girl/9-year-old boy button-pushing. To accomplish this last, she knits, exercises (ideally both at once! Hiking while knitting: don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it), and stays up way too late reading mysteries.
