We would also like to congratulate this year’s top-scoring Early Career Professional abstract, Dr Bilikisu Reni Elewonibi. Dr Elewonibi presented her abstract, entitled “Pregnancy loss in Urban Tanzania: Patterns and Predictors,” at this year’s conference. Every year the IH section awards two $500 scholarships to top scoring abstracts submitted by IH Early Career Professionals. Don’t forget to submit your abstract to next year’s meeting in San Francisco!
