My name is Dr. Robert Scanlon and I am MLI’s maternal health education director. I am a board certified obstetrician/gynecologist and currently the Chief of Obstetrics for Huntington Hospital on Long Island, New York. My wife, Cathy, and I have three children, Robert, Tim and Elizabeth. I have formed AIM (Aiding Infants & Mothers) New York, which funds various MLI related projects. In addition to my expertise in obstetrics, I have had the privilege of providing emergency obstetrical care training to colleagues in Nigeria, Ghana, and Sierra Leone. In Sierra Leone, I have worked with Dr. Darius Magee, one of the world's foremost obstetrical fistula surgeons and director of the West Africa Fistula Foundation.

In my free time, you can find me with my family or playing golf.
