    SimpliFed is working to reinvent infant nutrition and democratize access to evidence-based nutritional health for babies. SimpliFed’s vision is for every parent to feel good about feeding their family. Its mission is to create a new model for optimal feeding – by building trusted relationships with parents, partnering with healthcare payers and providers, and shifting policy, practice, and narratives to drive health and economic equity, starting with baby’s first foods. SimpliFed starts working with moms during pregnancy to educate them on their baby feeding options, then surges support after the baby is born from their network of international board certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs). SimpliFed’s IBCLCs then work with parents judgement-free over time to help them reach their baby feeding goals to help increase breastfeeding rates that can and want to. As an intern, you will work with SimpliFed’s leadership team to help perform research on the following topic areas:

    • Conducting research in the scientific literature on 5 core topic areas: (1) infant feeding health outcomes including benefits of breastfeeding for mother and infant (including risk reduction), differences in health outcomes associated with different feeding practices, and disparities among populations of interest, (2) efficacy of lactation consulting interventions, (3) cost effectiveness of breastfeeding and lactation consulting (e.g. healthcare system savings, individual savings), (4) the role of infant feeding as part of maternal and child health outcomes and disparities, and (5) gaps or related areas for future research (e.g. growing and diversifying the perinatal workforce)
    • Identifying enabling policy opportunities (such as the “Momnibus” legislative package) and summarizing key elements for translation into research, advocacy, partnership, or implementation projects
    • Identifying and tracking scientific/academic/policy/implementation research opportunities including potential funding opportunities
    • Mapping the lactation consulting and maternal health landscape from a cross sector perspective (public sector, nonprofits, private sector initiatives, programs, partnerships, and organizations

    The Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health is seeking volunteers interested in public health and Native American affairs to assist in a collaboration between our Center, Indian Country Today, the JHU Applied Physics Lab, and several other institutions across the nation on a much needed COVID-19 resource for American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) communities.

We are working with the Johns Hopkins team managing the case tracking to highlight AIAN cases on tribal lands and have partnered with Indian Country Today to begin our own grass-roots efforts to source and supply this data.

    We are seeking to recruit volunteers to help us track cases of COVID-19 on tribal lands. A link to the application form for this opportunity can be found here: http://jhsph.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8koIRdXBJfCaRJX.
