Cheryl Moyer

Cheryl Moyer, PhD, MPH is Associate Director of Global REACH and an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Learning Health Sciences and Obstetrics and Gynecology at University of Michigan.

Dr. Moyer’s work focuses on maternal and neonatal health in sub-Saharan Africa, including a specific focus on the social and cultural factors linked to maternal and neonatal outcomes.

Together with partners in northern Ghana, Dr. Moyer led a 3-year, USAID-funded project that combined social autopsy, spatial visualization, and community engagement to address the social and cultural factors associated with maternal and neonatal deaths and "near-misses", or those mothers and babies who almost died but ultimately survived.

Dr. Moyer also participated in the 2016 Lancet Maternal Health Series, co-authoring two of the papers in the series.
