UIC Alumna Receives Fulbright

University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health alumna, Ms. Rebecca Liebman (MPH ’06), has been selected for a 2014-2015 Fulbright U.S. Student Award to India. Ms. Liebman proposed a qualitative research study aimed to improve quality care for preterm babies in healthcare systems that serve urban slum areas in Delhi, India. In particular, the study will determine the barriers to utilization of Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC); an alternative for mothers of preterm infants that promotes skin-to-skin contact between mother and child and exclusive breastfeeding.
