Biography

Dr. Naomi T. Laventhal joined the University of Michigan in August 2009 after completing her residency in pediatrics, fellowships in neonatology and clinical medical ethics, and a master's degree in public policy at the University of Chicago. In the Brandon Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital she cares for critically ill newborns, provides prenatal consultation for parents expecting to deliver premature infants and infants with congenital anomalies, and teaches neonatal-perinatal medicine and bioethics to residents and medical students. Her research is in neonatal clinical and research ethics, and her current work focuses on the prognostic value of healthcare providers' predictions of neonatal outcomes.
