Dr. Alex Peahl, MD, MSc was Maven’s first Visiting Scientist. Dr. Peahl is an Assistant Professor and physician-investigator in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Michigan, and a nationally recognized expert on prenatal care redesign and innovation. Dr. Peahl has led some of the most influential research on redesigning prenatal care, including a recent study of the impact of COVID-19 on the evolution of prenatal care delivery guidelines in the United States.
“I have found that right-sizing prenatal care is critical to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of prenatal care for all patients, particularly for those facing the greatest barriers to care. As a Visiting Scientist, I am excited to share my insights with Maven and collaborate with its clinical team to further advance the company's care model, designing and studying new high-value, patient-centered approaches to maternity care delivery,” said Dr. Peahl.
“Working at Maven has been a wonderful experience. I’ve had the opportunity to lead research, first author publications, and present the findings at conferences. I’ve also helped develop enhanced care plans, increased my knowledge of virtual care, and expanded my professional network.”
Maven has welcomed a new clinician innovator, Dr. Constance Guille, Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Obstetrics and Gynecology at Medical University of South Carolina, as its second Visiting Scientist. In this role, Dr. Guille brings her expertise as a reproductive psychiatrist to help advance Maven’s clinical research roadmap and provide strategic input on care model design, with a focus on mental health.
“Having seen the devastating effects of unrecognized and untreated maternal mental health disorders, I believe there is a tremendous need and promise for using digital health to integrate patient-centered maternal behavioral health treatment into routine prenatal care,” said Dr. Guille.
“I am excited to share my insights with Maven to further advance the company's maternal mental health care model.”
