Editor's Note

The University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies, on September 5, announced that it had been awarded a $23.57 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The grant will be used to fund a project to investigate how stress experienced by parents, and fueled by social and economic inequities, can biologically and psychologically affect their children.

The research team’s goal is to enroll a racially and ethnically diverse group of 1,250 pregnant women from Miami-Dade County and follow their children from birth to age 7 years.

The project is part of the Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Program, which aims to create a historical cohort of more than 50,000 children across the US and their parents.
