Investment in research in pregnancy and the postpartum period is critical to optimize the health of women and their families. Much of the evidence that guides obstetric and postpartum practice is generated from studies that are funded by the NIH. Join us to hear more about the work of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, as well as the challenges and opportunities faced by industry to including this population in clinical trials.

Speakers include:

* Dr. Diana Bianchi, Director, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development
