Axis Gets Ultrasound Unit from MedShare!

Coinciding with Mother’s Day, Axis Community Health received a new ultrasound unit from MedShare.

When Dr. Dawnell Moody, Chief Medical Officer of Axis, learned that MedShare had ultrasound units available to donate to Bay Area health centers, she immediately knew this could benefit Axis’ prenatal program. Working with MedShare and Philips, the manufacturer who is donating the units, Axis became one of 10 Bay Area safety-net clinics to receive a machine through MedShare’s Safe Birthing Initiative (SBI) that seeks to address birth equity challenges both in the U.S. and abroad.

MedShare and Philips invited Axis to be the first recipient with delivery just before Mother’s Day. To spotlight SBI, Axis and MedShare were featured in a video about the importance of supporting safety net providers prenatal care.
