SoS 39 – Mothers2Babies with Drs. Luseadra McKerracher and Deb Sloboda
This week on this Sausage of Science, Chris and Cara chat with Drs. Luseadra and McKerracher and Deb Sloboda of McMaster University in Ontario. Drs. McKerracher and Sloboda are a part of the “Mothers2Babies” project based in Hamilton, Ontario. They talk about their experience working to put anthropological knowledge about the developmental origins of health and disease (DoHAD) into public health practice in an area with profound maternal and child health inequities.
The Mothers2Babies project is a multi-disciplinary, integrative project that combines expertise from fetal physiology and biology with anthropology and public health.
