Title of Collaborative Activity:

Health Equity Seminar Series: Racial and Ethnic Disparities and Pregnancy Outcomes

Description of Collaborative Activity:

As a part of NICHD Health Disparities Seminar Series, the Institute’s Division of Scientific Programs (DSP) hosted a workshop to address prospective father’s role in pregnancy outcomes. This workshop brings together researchers, health care providers, and members of professional organizations to identify gaps in and barriers to research on this subject. The role of the father in child development has been well documented. However, much less attention has been paid to the role of fathers during pregnancy and child birth. This workshop took a transdisciplinary approach in discussing the role of expectant fathers in pregnancy outcomes, and how paternal involvement can impact differences in pregnancy outcomes.
