Emily Oken MD, MPH diamond
Fellowship Site Director
Associate Professor of Population Medicine, Harvard Medical School
Dr. Oken’s research interests include the influence of nutrition and toxicant exposures during pregnancy and early childhood on maternal and child health. She has published widely on predictors and sequelae of maternal weight in the peripartum period, and leads studies examining the effects of maternal fish consumption during pregnancy on child health, incorporating both the risks of contaminant exposure and the benefits of the healthful nutrients within fish. Dr. Oken is co-PI of Project Viva, a groundbreaking longitudinal pre-birth cohort study of pregnant women and their offspring, and PI of a grant based within the Project Viva cohort to evaluate associations of prenatal exposures with offspring atopy and asthma in the early teen years. She is also PI of an R01 to follow up 16-17 year olds who had been enrolled at birth in a randomized trial of breastfeeding promotion. She is also the recipient of a NICHD-funded K24 Midcareer Mentorship Award. Trained in med/peds, she practices primary care at the Gretchen and Edward Fish Center for Women's Health at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where she pursues her interest in medical care for women before, during, and after pregnancy. In 2009, Dr. Oken was awarded the inaugural Rising Star Award by the Society for Pediatric and Perinatal Epidemiologic Research, and in 2011 she was awarded a Young Mentor award from Harvard Medical School. She is a graduate of the Harvard GIM Fellowship Program.
