Elizabeth M. Miller, ABD in Anthropology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, has published a paper in the American Journal of Human Biology on Maternal hemoglobin depletion in a settled Northern Kenyan pastoral population, demonstrating decline in hemoglobin with increasing parity. Heard a rumor that Elizabeth will be presenting some of her fascinating work on the reproductive ecology of breastmilk immunity in Ariaal women at what will surely be a fantastic symposium at the upcoming AAPA meeting in Minneapolis this spring. Some of her previous work has explored changes in serum markers of immunity during pregnancy using NHANES data. Can't wait to hear more from her!
