BIRTH MOTHERS NEEDED BY 3/1/21: Birth in the Time of COVID-19

To New Haven and Area Neighbors, Colleagues, Birth Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents, Community Health Workers, Midwives, Doulas, Family Medicine, Ob/Gyn and Pediatric Providers, Maternal and Child Health Activists/Advocates, Movers & Shakers:

 

Tomeka Frieson, a member of the Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE) as well as a Yale College senior studying Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. She is writing her senior thesis on a subject of passionate interest, maternal and child health.  Tomeka is asking for volunteers (who delivered at Yale New Haven Hospital) for her study looking at the association between stress caused by COVID-19-related events and birth outcomes. She wants to better understand how the stress potentially caused by COVID-19 and other events during the year 2020 has impacted birth outcomes.


Obtaining responses would allow researchers-in-training  such as Tomeka to advance understanding of how novel global health pandemics impact birth outcomes in mothers of all races and ethnicities. The findings from this study will inform further preventative research, interventions, and resources to more effectively address stress during pregnancy and over a lifetime.  She is looking for mothers who have given birth to children between November 2019 and February 2021.

 

Here are some important things to know:

 

  • The online survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete
  • All participants can elect to enter their email address to be entered in a raffle to receive one of 150 $10 Amazon gift cards as a thank you for your time

Give a Ride, Close a Gap

In a blog describing the new $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, a partnership of LISC, Uber, Paypal and Walgreens, LISC's President & CEO Lisa L. Glover details how the fund tackles more than the transportation gap that is keeping tens of thousands of Americans from accessing COVID-19 vaccines.

In a letter to the Biden-Harris Administration, which has called for corporate America to help in the fight to end the pandemic, the CEOs of Uber, Paypal, Walgreens and LISC announced a new Vaccine Access Fund that will connect people with free rides to COVID-19 vaccine sites.
