2018 cohort, Wayne State University
Donna Manlongat, MScN, BScN, RN, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Future of Nursing Scholar, is interested in continuing her studies on maternal newborn health and the determinants of health. Her master’s level thesis was on “The Effects of Introducing Prenatal Breastfeeding Education in the Obstetricians’ Waiting Rooms”. Her study found an increase in positive breastfeeding knowledge and attitudes after the educational intervention was introduced. She would like to resume her research in decreasing barriers women experience antenatally due to the social determinants of health.
