Michele Forman



Michele R. Forman began her three decades-long research career examining maternal and child health with a special focus on pregnancy outcomes in disadvantaged populations and has a 39 year career in field epidemiology research across the globe with an emphasis on early life exposures and risk for chronic disease as well as the role of nutrition in growth and health across the life course.  As her research foci have shifted from low birth-weight to chronic disease, the stillpoint has remained fixed; she examines the developmental origins of disease. Her work focuses on pre-pregnancy body mass index, diet, weight gain, and physical activity in pregnancy and explores how these factors that are captured under the term - energy balance- are associated with risk for pediatric ALL and breast cancer.
