Roseline Jean Louis, a second year doctoral student in nursing, has been selected to be a Birth Equity Research Scholar with the National Birth Equity Collaborative (NBEC) for the 2020-2022 cohort. The Review Committee unanimously agreed to offer Roseline this prestigious fellowship.

The committee stated being thoroughly impressed with Louis’ nursing experience, keen insight on strategies to improve maternal and infant health and her demonstrated commitment to advancing birth equity, particularly for Black birthing individuals.

The two-year leadership program provides training and a generous stipend. The LGS community is excited to celebrate this great achievement as Jean Louis continues her research, scholarship, and advocacy toward addressing systemic racism that disproportionately affects adverse maternal and infant outcomes in Black women in the United States.
