She has worked in program development in various arenas, including co-founding a “Stork’s Store” prenatal incentive program, initiating a natural family planning education program, and teaching childbirth education classes.
Candace is fluent in Spanish and has worked for many years with Hispanic and migrant patient populations. She taught childbirth education classes in Spanish and led a monthly health education group for Hispanic women. She is currently working with the Migrant Clinicians Network to provide clinical guidance on domestic violence, prenatal, and other programs.
Working with Hispanic populations in the US has led to a growing interest in work in Central America. Candace has studied Spanish in Guatemala, and has traveled to Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras and Haiti for short-term health care projects. She has acted as faculty for the International Health Medical Education Consortium Elective in Honduras, as well as for the University of Cincinnati Department of Family Medicine Medical Brigade in Honduras and has provided midwifery training classes to community-based midwives in Honduras.
