This award recipient incited a crusade to form a club on Cook campus where mothers could come with their babies and use the space to work, breastfeed, or leave the baby with a babysitter of their choice to go to classes, seminars, or meetings. They are the president of the new club, “Baby Friendly Spaces,” that is the first family friendly space in Rutgers, and at any university, as far as this group is aware. They have lead the formation of a club with a fantastic team, keep the space in shape, and started organizing seminars for the parents of families with young kids. It has been inspirational to see the leadership skills, the passion and hard work of the club members. This effort which this award recipient started is practical and academic, and at the same time not only helps Rutgers families with babies, but allows tremendous opportunities for research. The club is an effort that fosters gender equality and wellbeing of families, and fights the painful separation of the mother-baby dyad that causes such a dilemma to mothers, and likely affects infant development.
