FHM Partners with Duke Global Health Institute Student Research Training (SRT) Program Graduate Student Summer 2014

May 3, 2014

Duke Global Health Institute student, Lauren Zalla, will partner with FHM this summer to conduct a research study on Assessing the Relationship between Maternal Nutritional Status, Breastfeeding, and Infant Health Outcomes in Leogane, Haiti.

This work will be conducted to: inform women of their own, and their child’s nutritional status; to better understand breast-feeding practice and nutrition in the Leogane/Haitian context; and to inform Lauren’s thesis for the Masters in Global Health. FHM intends to work with Lauren to publish the results of this study, and to use the data generated to design appropriate breast-feeding and nutrition programs for future FHM facilities in Leogane and neighboring Fondwa. This study has been approved by the Duke and Haitian IRBs and will run from May-August 2014.
