Her project is titled, “Postpartum Management of the Pregnancy Complicated by Preeclampsia: A Pilot Study Using Health Monitoring at Home.” The one-year award includes an additional $5,000 from UAF because Kinder is collaborating with Christina Serrano, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Information Systems.
