Kybele, Inc., is pleased to announce that it has entered a collaboration agreement with Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center specifically with the Novant Health Maya Angelou Women's Health and Wellness Center. The agreement was signed by Kybele's president Dr. Medge Owen and Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center president Denise B. Mihal on September 01, 2014. It outlines potential opportunities for collaboration on programs and activities.
Under the proposed agreement, the parties decided to promote increased cooperation and communication to reach beyond the boundries of the United States and identify host-country collaborations with the goal to improve healthcare and disease prevention for women. The organizations will act as a resource for host-country collaborations by requesting clinical care and prevention programs. They will also work with government agencies, non-government agencies, corporations and individuals in host countries to identify gender healthcare discrepancies and reduce the discrepancy gap. The goals are to address aspects of women's health that are important to each global collaborator, assess current outcomes and determine availability of, and access to, healthcare, prevention and education. Particular focus will be on creating programs to reduce mortality and morbidity in women and newborns.
In addition, Dr. Owen, the President of Kybele, Inc., has been named Medical Director of Global Health to develop global health programs of joint interest such as enhancing and advancing current global women's health work and supervising structured and meaningful global health field experiences for Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center's faculty and staff.
