Reproductive Health

MPC research on reproductive health spans the life course, studying children’s health from preconception through adolescence and maternal health from pregnancy through parenthood. Three features of MPC’s reproductive health research community highlight our capacity for cutting-edge contributions: 1) disciplinary diversity; 2) rich and varied data resources; and 3) the combination of established and emerging scholars. MPC scholars of reproductive health span eight disciplines: epidemiology, applied economics, geography, health policy, history, pediatrics, public policy and sociology. Such disciplinary diversity is a fruitful incubator for innovative new scholarship, catalyzing novel partnerships and expanding research across fields. PRA Leaders: Elizabeth Boyle and Jaime Slaughter-Acey
