Meet Jordana Gilman

MD/MPH student Jordana Gilman is collecting and analyzing data on hundreds of pregnancies in Syracuse from 2014 to 2016 to help make a case for better birth outcomes.

“We have higher than state averages of unplanned pregnancies, short-interval pregnancy rates and poor birth outcomes,” said Jordana, who will obtain the dual MD/MPH degree in 2019. “We could prevent a lot of negative outcomes.”

Jordana is a proponent of a form of family planning called immediate postpartum Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) External Icon, which involves placement of an IUD within 10 minutes of the delivery of the placenta.
