The Job:
Conduct interviews in the maternity wards of Moffitt-Long Hospital and the SFGH, collect infant anthropometric data from medical records in the well baby nurseries, enter the data into a Microsoft Access database, help with data analysis, and help write it up!

The Collaborators: Melvin B. Heyman, MD MPH, Janet M. Wojcicki, PhD MPH, UCSF Pediatric (GI/Nutrition), and Cam Tu-Tran, MD SFGH Pediatrics.
