Kathryn Hall-Trujillo | Founder Birthing Project USA | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

Kathryn Hall-Trujillo worked for the state of California from 1976 to 1991 as a public health administrator, and during that time, noticed that families often struggled to pay for the care of infants born with serious health problems.
