|Fetal Heart Monitoring Instructor Recognition Program|
The AWHONN Fetal Heart Monitoring Program (FHM) provides fetal heart monitoring education to approximately 15,000 perinatal clinicians each year worldwide.
The Fetal Heart Monitoring Instructor Recognition Award is an opportunity to acknowledge and highlight Instructors' involvement, unwavering commitment and significant contributions in helping AWHONN achieve our goals for promoting the health of women and newborns. Our Instructors truly make a difference in helping AWHONN's FHM Program stand above the rest.
