Member Spotlight: Sue Fenton + become a Member today!

US DOHaD Society members are essential to collaboration and community across a diverse range of scientists, clinicians, and trainees! Today, we wanted to highlight:

Sue Fenton, PhD MS, is the director of the Center for Human Health and the Environment at North Carolina State University and has been a long-time member of the US DOHaD Society. She has a breadth of experience studying how Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) target and effect the placenta and related health effects. Knowing we all are exposed to PFAS, her work aligns with our mission to identify meaningful windows and targets of intervention to improve lifelong health. Outside the lab, Dr. Fenton enjoys visiting the “quiet coast” of California, between Monterey and Half Moon Bay!

As she studies exposures in utero that influence health and disease, it was a clear fit for Dr. Fenton to join the US DOHaD Society. Though as she reflects on her years of involvement, she says that the people she’s met through the society is her favorite thing about being a member. To anyone considering joining, she says “Do it!” and highlights what an excellent opportunity the Annual Meeting is for networking.

Support from and involvement by researchers like Dr. Fenton are important to keeping our society thriving. If you are also a member of the US DOHaD Society, consider this a friendly reminder to renew your membership dues or, if you’re not yet a member, to join our community! By renewing or becoming a member, you help support the initiatives of the US DOHaD Society to connect scientists, clinicians, and trainees with shared interests across the nation!
