Thank you Marty for inviting Alisha! Rotary Host Marty Kaliski

Alisha and her team from UC Berkeley have created a device that will effectively lower the global maternal mortality rate due to postpartum hemorrhage. They currently have a patent pending and have won initial seed funding from the Big Ideas Grant competition. They are also a member of the CET Venture Labs, an incubator program for early stage start ups. Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the number one cause of maternal mortality worldwide, killing about 150,000 females per year. It is a 100% treatable condition. In the developed world, drugs and treatment have been optimized to have the maternal mortality rate close to zero. However, 99% of all PPH-related maternal mortality occur in developing nations, where treatments and drugs are not easily accessible.
