  • Identification of knowledge gaps in research and practice
  • Network development among the NCCs and other existing networks and organizations to support the use of evidence in decision –making and the various governance structures for public health.

Stirrups and Stories is a grassroots initiative to improve health outcomes and the care women receive in the OB or GYN office by collecting women's stories to educate and empower both patients and providers.

The purpose of Stirrups and Stories is multi-fold: first and foremost, to give space to women to talk about their experiences. Who really asks, 'so how is OB/GYN care for you, ladies?' Not usually the providers or medical establishment, and other women tend to ask (in our experience) in one-on-one or friendship settings. But this information is valuable! If we start listening to the women, and collecting their stories, we can discover reasons women do or do not seek care, what concerns women actually have, how providers can improve the care they give their patients, what's going divinely right and what's going egregiously wrong.
