Location: ONLINE

Join us online as the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology welcomes Dr. Nichole Nidey from The University of Iowa's Division of Biostatistics and Epidemiology and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Nidey will deliver a talk titled "Substance Use & Perinatal Care" on Friday, October 16th, beginning at 10:00 AM via Zoom.

Description: Prenatal and postpartum care for women with substance use is important due to increased risk of poor health outcomes. The influence of substance use on perinatal care utilization is not well characterized, especially postpartum care. During this presentation, we will examine the effect of substance use during pregnancy on prenatal and postpartum care utilization in a nationally representative sample and identify maternal characteristics associated with inadequate prenatal and postpartum care among women with substance use.
