The work done by Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine faculty members (and even some students) is regularly highlighted in newspapers, online media outlets and more. Below you’ll find links to articles and videos of Feinberg in the news.
While the new study shows an association between anemia early in pregnancy, “an association is not the same as causation,” said Dr. Nevert Badreldin, an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. “It’s hard to assess, based on this information, whether the anemia is in fact creating the association or whether the higher rates of neurodevelopmental disorders are related to something else the women (with anemia early in pregnancy) have in common.” Women should be reassured that the current guidelines recommend screening for anemia at the first prenatal visit, Badreldin said. “So the great majority of women are getting screened early,” she added.
