2017

Dr. Ciciolla became a Co-Investigator on the Dads and Infant Development in Oklahoma (DADIO) study. This study wants to understand the early life experiences of infants that help infants bounce back from hardships. We are interested in learning how families cope with common and uncommon stressors, how they support each other, and how family interactions affect the health of the entire family and the development of infants. We know very little about how fathers influence infant development and mothers’ health. Therefore, we are studying different types of families to see how family members influence each other’s health.
