Environmental Research Seminar: “The interplay of maternal diet with environmental exposures in pregnancy”

With Rita S. Strakovsky, PhD, RD (Assistant Professor, Dept. of Food Science and Human Nutrition, Michigan State University)

Dr. Rita Strakovsky is currently an Assistant Professor of Human Nutrition at Michigan State University, where she is additionally affiliated with the Institute for Integrative Toxicology and the Reproductive and Developmental Sciences Program. Rita obtained her Ph.D. in Nutritional Sciences and Registered Dietitian credentials from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2011. She remained in Champaign as a NIH T32 postdoctoral fellow in Endocrine, Developmental & Reproductive Toxicology and later as an NIEHS K99/R00 grantee. While much of Rita’s earlier training was in animal models of pregnancy, she currently evaluates the impacts of various environmental and dietary exposures on the health of pregnant women and their children. Specifically, this presentation will focus on the potential of maternal diet quality to mitigate the impacts of environmental chemical exposures. Rita will additionally highlight more recent findings related to novel approaches for evaluating diet quality in pregnant women.
