Dr. Azad interviewed by Parents Magazine about "How Breast Milk Boosts Your Baby's Microbiome"
Dr. Azad was interviewed by Parents Magazine about how breast milk impacts a baby's microbiome, underscoring the importance of breastfeeding and the need for more policies and support for women who want to breastfeed.
Dr. Meghan Azad and Dr. Alain Labrique (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health) were awarded a Grand Challenges "Call to Action" Grant form the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Their project will explore whether ritual foods given to newborns before breastfeeding ("prelacteals") affect the gut microbiome in Bangladeshi infants.
