Hoppe’s Staying Healthy After Childbirth earns HHS grant

Huge congratulations to Kara Hoppe, DO, MS, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine! Hoppe’s Staying Healthy After Childbirth program, a home telehealth monitoring program for postpartum hypertension, was one of 20 recipients of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Phase I Hypertension Innovator Awards.

The Hypertension Innovator Award Competition was created to identify effective hypertension programs that could be applied to hypertension during pregnancy or postpartum:

“The goal of the competition is to demonstrate sustainability and the ability to replicate and/or expand programs that provide effective monitoring and follow-up of hypertension for women who are pregnant and/or postpartum.”
