Natalie Hernandez, MD
On October 18, 2021, Natalie D. Hernandez, Ph.D., M.P.H. will be honored with the Carolyn Wetzel Continuum Award at the Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Georgia (HMHBGA) 47th Annual Meeting and Conference.
Each year, HMHBGA, recognizes a volunteer or health professional for their contributions in advocacy and policy in support of the health and well-being of Georgia’s families with the Carolyn Wetzel Continuum Award. The award was created to honor the memory of Carolyn Wetzel, a long-time HMHBGA member, friend, and dedicated public health advocate for mothers, birth givers, and babies, and is presented to the recipient at HMHBGA’s annual conference on maternal and child health. In the last year, the COVID-19 pandemic shed light on many of the health inequities facing Georgia families, with significant impact on mothers and caregivers.
