Chantry receives award for excellence in breastfeeding research
Caroline Chantry, professor emerita at the UC Davis Department of Pediatrics and a volunteer clinical faculty member, is selected as this year’s Patricia Martin Annual Awardee for Excellence in Breastfeeding Research by the Journal of Human Lactation.
Chantry received this recognition for her significant research contributions concerning early breastfeeding patterns, the influence of maternal nutrition on breastfeeding outcomes, infants’ physiological responses to human milk feedings and safe infant feeding practices for women with HIV.
This award is given to a senior researcher with a history of excellence in breastfeeding research. The journal's editorial review board and the editors choose the award winner by majority vote.
“I am most honored and grateful that the journal’s editorial board considered my body of research so worthy of merit,” Chantry said.
