While this may seem like an unusual request, many of the researchers involved in combating Firefighter occupational cancer are leaving no aspect of this important issue uncovered.
In this case, researchers from the Center for Fire, Rescue & EMS Health Research and University of Arizona are looking for new Moms who are also active Firefighters, running/responding to calls. With funding from a FEMA AFG Research and Development grant, they will be looking at the safety of breast milk post-fire.
If you are currently a breastfeeding Mom/Firefighter who is actively responding to fires and are willing to participate, please email [email protected] For questions, you can email the project Principal Investigator Dr. Sara Jahnke at [email protected]
Please also share this request to any Firefighter/Moms you are aware of.
