Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics (ALSO) is an essential piece of obstetrical training provided to all first year residents. Shasta Community is proud to support our own training team: Dr. Paul Davainis and Dr. Amanda Mooneyham who teach this course annually. Both providers have extensive obstetrical experience and bring a Family Medicine touch to our OB experience.
