Professional Interests

Diana S Wolfe, MD MPH is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Women’s Health, Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine.  Dr. Wolfe’s work in global health began locally when she volunteered as a bilingual pregnancy counselor in Escondido, California.  She then started working in Africa in 1998 where she served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mali, West Africa.  She was part of the national Maternal and Child Health Program.  She worked as health educator in a remote village, Karangasso, located in the Sikasso region, with a birth assistant to develop health education for 7 local villages on subjects such as infant nutrition, prenatal care, family planning, and developing community health committees for each village.  She also initiated a birth assistant training program with the head nurse of the nearest local health center that included training subjects such as management of postpartum hemorrhage, contraception, and first steps in obstetric emergencies.

During medical school, Dr. Wolfe worked on “the Assessment of the Knowledge of Women’s Health,” a project that initiated with the Bedoin community of Israel.  She implemented the same pre and post-training test to the 7 Malian villages where she served in the Peace Corps as well as to several villages in the Peruvian Amazon. 

Her most recent work in Africa was in Butare (Huye), Rwanda, serving as a MFM subspecialist in the Human Resources for Health (HRH) program, directed by the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) of Rwanda.  Dr. Wolfe was the first MFM subspecialist from Einstein to commence HRH at CHUB, Butare, Rwanda.
