NIA scientist’s work featured in maternal morbidity and mortality health publication

Rosaly Correa-de-Araujo, M.D., M.Sc., Ph.D., of the National Institute on Aging, contributed to a special edition of the Journal of Women’s Health focused on a range of maternal health issues. Released February 22, 2021, the publication includes “Clinical Outcomes in High-Risk Pregnancies Due to Advanced Maternal Age,” in which Correa-de-Araujo and her co-author describe potential health issues or complications faced by pregnant women 35 years of age and older. The article also highlights additional risks faced by women who live with a chronic illness that demands increased monitoring or surveillance.

Correa-de-Araujo’s other co-authored article, “Social and Structural Determinants of Health Inequities in Maternal Health,” focuses on social and cultural aspects that affect maternal health outcomes.

Additional topics addressed in the journal include depression, vitamin supplementation, health equity, the social determinants of health, and beyond. The compilation was made possible through a collaboration among NIH institutes and centers, the broader scientific community, and other federal agencies.
