Christabelle Toso


Years on BIBB project: 2022

In the Summer of 2022, Christabelle was a CDC Undergraduate Public Health Scholar (CUPS) through LSI Project at Morehouse College. Working in the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Department at Michigan State University under Dr. Dawn Misra, she conducted a preliminary quantitative analysis using the data from the BIBB Study to compare Avoidance Coping scores and Marijuana use among pregnant Black Women and developed a manuscript. She presented these research findings at ABCRMS 2022 and SACNAS 2022. She also worked with the BIBB Study team to develop infographics for research manuscripts that emerged from the BIBB Study (see "What we've learned" page).


Currently, Christabelle is an MPH student at the Rollins School of Public Health in the Department of Global Health with a concentration in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Population Studies. She is also a Graduate Research Assistant at IANPHI and a Community Researcher at Commsor. This Summer, she will be working with Dr. Moreland’s research team that will be conducting a cross-sectional study working to identify relevant risk factors associated with caesarian sections at Muhima Maternity Hospital in Kigali, Rwanda.
