“Education has been a key part of my 22-year career in Maternal-Fetal Medicine and I felt compelled to continue this mission despite leaving my clinical practice last year.  

Because of your generosity in donating to the Kirk D. Ramin Scholarship, we are able to begin offering scholarships in 2018 for continuing education of health care providers that care for women and their complicated pregnancies."
