    Ifeyinwa Asiodu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Health Care Nursing at University of California, San Francisco School of Nursing. As a researcher, registered nurse, and lactation consultant, her research is focused on the intersection of racism, systemic and structural barriers, life course perspective, and human milk and lactation. Dr. Asiodu uses a critical ethnographic lens to inform her work. The long-term goal of her program of research is to reduce infant feeding disparities and increase access to high quality human milk feeding care, lactation support, and equitable contraception services for Black communities. She is also actively engaged in local, state and national human milk feeding (e.g. breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and donor human milk), reproductive health, maternal and child health, and public health organizations geared toward achieving birth and human milk feeding equity and justice.
