ARTEMIS (Alliance To End Preventable Maternal and Infant Morbidities and Mortalities) recognizes the importance of inter-professional and inter-disciplinary relationships that include international partners to impact global health. We are committed to expanding a diverse community of global health leaders and scholars at the University of Michigan and more broadly by creating collaborative opportunities for research and education. Our vision is to position ourselves and the university to be recognized as leaders in the field locally, nationally, and globally.  To do this we will leverage the critical mass within the university now engaged in global research, teaching, and service focused on women and newborn health; capitalizing on innovation in research as one of our main foci through the development of an inter-professional and interdisciplinary network. Scholars of ARTEMIS will have an impact on improving the health and well-being of globally underserved populations with a specific focus on women and newborn health.  Included in our vision is mentoring students in global women and newborn health research.
