Research by Two CON Professors Highlighted as Significant Contribution to Midwifery

For the second time this year, work by researchers with strong connections to UIC's College of Nursing (CON) has been highlighted by the Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health for significant contributions to midwifery.  Previously it was college Alumni.  This time it is CON professors Aleeca F. Bell, PhD, RN, CNM and Rosemary White-Traut, PhD, RN, FAAN.

As part of the journal's "Honoring US Midwife Researchers" series, this month's issue addressed "Research on Intrapartum and Neonatal Care and Management".  Heading off the section "Effects of Intrapartum Interventions", were several articles co-written by Drs. Bell and White-Traut.  The research, as the article explained, "examines biological aspects of birth and associations with maternal-child outcomes."

The "Honoring US Midwife Researchers" series is appearing in every issue for 2015.  It is meant "to celebrate 60 years of the American College of Nurse-Midwives".  A full list of articles related to the 60th Anniversary can be found here.
