Nina A. Juntereal (PENN ’24) has been awarded two grants for her PhD thesis entitled, “A Longitudinal Descriptive Study of Antenatal Milk Expression and Milk Supply in Mothers of Infants with Congenital Surgical Anomalies”. The first grant is from the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) and will help provide funds for equipment and materials. NANN strives to provide avenues for members to become more active in accessing, understanding, conducting, and practicing research and evidence-based neonatal care. The second grant is from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and will provide other key research supplies to enable shipment to places as far as Australia. CHOP supports and encourages students to take part in clinical research and believes the work will help create healthier futures for children.
Nina is also the lead author of two new exciting papers: “‘Mothers’ Experiences with Antenatal Milk Expression,” from The American Journal of Maternal/Child Nursing; and “Integrative Review of Antenatal Milk Expression and Mother–Infant Outcomes During the First Two Weeks After Birth,” from the Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic & Neonatal Nursing.
