PANDORA Cohort Wave 1 – assessment of the impact of maternal diabetes on child development
Dr Angela Titmuss
Menzies School of Health Research
This project explores the child health consequences of Type 2 Diabetes in pregnancy and gestational diabetes mellitus, in the context of a diabetes epidemic in the Indigenous population. This will inform design of future interventions to prevent the intergenerational cycle of disease within this high risk population. The project will examine the health and developmental outcomes of 18 to 42 month old Indigenous and non-Indigenous children, born to mothers with and without diabetes in pregnancy (DIP).
