Noon – 1 p.m. EST
Zoom Webinar

Join the Martha S. Pitzer Center for Women, Children and Youth for our next Lean In speaker, Veronica Barcelona, PhD, MSN, MPH, RN, PHNA-BC. Dr. Barcelona will speak about research frameworks, and the way she integrates genomics into the study of disparities in adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes.

Dr. Barcelona is an Assistant Professor at Yale School of Nursing, a public health nurse and a reproductive epidemiologist. Her program of research is focused on understanding risk factors for preterm birth through the study of epigenomics, racism and discrimination stressors and cardiovascular risk factors. She is the Primary Investigator (PI) of a National Institutes of Health (NIH)/National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) funded K01 study investigating DNA methylation, preterm birth and high blood pressure among African American children. Through the utilization of multi-omic methods, she hopes to reduce inequities in pregnancy and adverse birth outcomes for women and families of color.
