About the Speaker: Dr. Betsy Lozoff received her BA from Radcliffe College and MD from Case Western Reserve University. She is a developmental/behavioral pediatrician and currently Professor Emerita in the University of Michigan Departments of Pediatrics in the Medical School and Environmental Health Sciences in the School of Public Health. Dr. Lozoff is recognized as an
international authority on the short- and long-term effects of iron deficiency in infancy on behavior and development. More broadly, her research has focused on common nutritional and environmental problems that adversely affect children’s development in resource limited settings. This research program received uninterrupted NIH support for 40 years, with research projects in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Chile, India, and China. Drawing on this long-standing interest in children’s development in developing countries, Dr. Lozoff has become deeply involved with immigrants in Southwest Michigan and regional and national immigration issues. She has spearheaded the Berrien Immigrant Solidarity Network, which brings together over 180 people who are committed to making SW Michigan a welcoming place for immigrants.
