Lily Fu is a USC graduate student pursuing a Master’s degree in Public Health. Over the past summer (2011), she traveled abroad to assess air pollution beliefs and attitudes among pregnant women in Beijing, China. Working alongside Dr. Jim Zhang, her trip was part of a larger body of work to research air pollution exposure during pregnancy and adverse birth outcomes.

Lily’s research topic is: Socioeconomic Status and Belief of Air Pollution Effects on Adverse Birth Outcomes – China.

The USC Institute for Global Health is a campus-wide focal-point for interdisciplinary activities in global health. Its mission is to improve global health by educating future and current global health leaders, carrying out trans-disciplinary research, and assuring that the evidence collected informs policy and practice to make a difference.
