Impact of Donor Support

One inspiring success story that highlights the impact of your support involves our research on infant nutrition and its effects on long-term health. Thanks to generous contributions, we have had the privilege of engaging with over 250 mothers and their infants and toddlers. This work has revealed key gut microbial patterns that influence a child’s risk for developing obesity. These findings are helping our team of devoted scientists and students to develop targeted dietary interventions that optimize health trajectories for women and their children. This work will ultimately inform clinical guidelines and has garnered national recognition for our lab’s contributions to advancing maternal and child health.
