In this episode, I am joined by Evidence Based Birth® research editor Anna Bertone to explore the updates we’ve made to the EBB Signature Article on Vitamin K.
Anna received her Master’s in public health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and her Bachelor’s from East Carolina University. She currently lives in Huntsville, Alabama. Anna joined EBB as our research editor in 2016, and she works diligently on helping me update our research articles and classes that we teach, as well as helping to draft new articles. Anna also corresponds with investigators in the childbirth research field as coordinator of our peer review process. I asked her to help me update the Vitamin K article, originally published in 2014, and she started diving into the research into the fall of 2018. She has been poring over all the latest studies on Vitamin K, and today we discuss what she’s found!
