Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Decreasing risk for cardiometabolic disorders in pregnancy with a focus on preeclampsia

The prevalence of cardiometabolic disorders of pregnancy are increasing rapidly in women in the United States, particularly in black women. These disorders have a significant impact on the development of CVD in women as they age and on their offspring. The science to answer these questions are both mechanistic(understanding underlying mecanism of disease, esp preeclampsia) and behavioral. New methods of gathering data on lifestyle and interventions might be considered.
