Maternal and Child Health and Twin Studies

​Research assessing maternal and child health research seeks to answer questions related to the multifaceted health considerations relating to women, pregnancy, reproduction, childbirth, and infant and child well being. In addition, research in this area also involves twin's assessment. Twins represent a perfect opportunity to study health and behavior issues such as diabetes, migraines, age of menarche, and obesity, as well as alcohol and tobacco use and abuse.
