Reproductive Health Outcomes and Disparities (RHOADs) Research
The RHOADs research group generates new knowledge to improve reproductive health care and outcomes, and reduce racial and socioeconomic disparities. We are a collaboration between the University of Chicago and Northshore Departments of Family Medicine, and the Northshore Research Institute. We also work closely with the Ambulatory Primary Care Innovations Group (APCIG
) and researchers in Obstetrics & Gynecology and Public Health Sciences. Our goals are the following:
Build a sustainable research collaboration across the University of Chicago and Northshore based on passions for improving maternal and child health outcomes;
- Leverage the assets of the two institutions to study and implement interventions that will improve the quality of reproductive health care - including preconception, prenatal, intrapartum, postpartum, interconception, and family planning care - locally and beyond.
