Carolina Seminar: Rural Carolina, Globally Tackling Obesity in Pregnancy

Professor SeonAe Yeo and Assistant Professor Jennifer Leeman, along with Dr. Carmen Samueal-Hodge from the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health and Dr. Mohd Anwar from the SUSMaN Lab at NC A&T, have received funding from Carolina Seminars for their Rural Carolina, Globally Tackling Obesity in Pregnancy seminar for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Over the course of the two-year seminar they plan to first examine how other societies and countries provide prenatal care and social services and then identify one pragmatic solution for rural Carolina. To learn more about their project, take a look at the seminar proposal here.

Congratulations, Dr. Yeo and Dr. Leeman!
