Attending 2014 ASN meeting in San Diego, CA

We presented our results from Gulu at the 2014 Experimental Biology Meeting in San Diego on the moderating effect of maternal social support in the relationship between maternal food insecurity and prenatal depression. It was a great meeting and we received great feedback. We had great discussions on how nutritionists can work with other disciplines to harness social support networks available at community level for better mental health outcomes among pregnant women. Also we had a chance to highlight the work we are doing in the PostNAPs study understanding whether results observed prenatally extend into the postnatal period. Glad to be returning to Gulu today after this marathon of meetings.
