Friday, 05 February, 2021

The MCH Center of Excellence in Education, Research and Practice (MCH COE) at Saint Louis University’s College for Public Health and Social Justice presents its first
“MCH Research Spotlight” panel discussion on the topic of COVID-19 and Preterm Birth.

This panel seeks to address the seemingly contradictory findings of COVID-19 being associated with both increasing and decreasing rates of preterm birth.

Featured presenters Kate R. Woodworth, M.D., and Vincenzo Berghella, M.D., will make two brief presentations describing emerging research on the impact of COVID-19 on preterm birth. The panel will then take questions from students, faculty and professionals in the MCH field, to learn about emerging knowledge regarding the topic of COVID-19 and Preterm Birth.

Learning Objectives:

Understanding emerging knowledge regarding the impact of COVID-19 on preterm birth, which is critical to documenting the impact of a novel virus on pregnancy outcomes and identifying solutions for harm reduction. This panel seeks to address the seemingly contradictory findings of COVID-19 being associated with both increasing and decreasing rates of preterm birth.
