This year, we recreated our annual research experience online. This annual research symposium brought together faculty, trainees, students, and postdocs from Stanford and beyond to explore the latest developments and innovations in maternal and child health research. Be sure to save the date for our fourth annual research symposium on November 5, 2021!
