2 students get funding for program

Two Wright State University students have won state funding to continue their programs aimed at raising awareness about postpartum depression among African-Americans.

Tawana Jackson and Tawanna Howard, both in WSU’s School of Professional Psychology, received a grant for a second year from the Ohio Commission on Minority Health for their “My Baby & Me” programs.

The money will enable the students to host two programs during Minority Health Month next April. Last April, the programs drew more than 100 women and children.

The programs are free and open to the public for not only mothers, but also relatives and caretakers. Postpartum depression can affect women after childbirth with such symptoms as sadness, anxiety, irritability, low energy and changes in sleeping and eating patterns.

Jackson said postpartum depression is underdiagnosed and under detected in the community, and that the Dayton area has one of the highest infant-mortality rates in the nation. DIANA BLOWERS, CONTRIBUTING WRITER
