Life course and transgenerational effects on and of pregnancy

The ultimate goal of this research is to eliminate later-life risk associated with pregnancy complications and other reproductive factors and establish whether transgenerational effects occur that affect pregnancy outcomes. Current work focuses on developing the PrePARED (Preconception Period Analysis of Risks and Exposures Influencing Health and Development) consortium of preconception studies to address novel problems in preconception health; developing multigenerational studies that can help understand how health disparities are created and transmitted across generations; and building on work that has established that pregnancy complications are predictors of later-life health to address pregnancy complications and cardiovascular health in American Indian women, and implementation research for postpartum women with a history of gestational diabetes.
