Erika (Gaby) Cordova Ramos, MD is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine and a clinical neonatologist at Boston Medical Center. Dr. Cordova Ramos’ research aims to mitigate racial/ethnic and linguistic disparities in perinatal outcomes within safety-net settings. Her research interests lie in using implementation science methods to engage communities and understand context to design and test implementation strategies to improve the health and wellbeing of low-income families with high-risk infants. Specifically, she investigates the impact of perinatal social care interventions on caregiving practices such as breastfeeding, safe sleep, and skin-to-skin contact, as well as family engagement in the NICU. Currently, she also co-leads multi-site quality improvement initiatives targeting social determinants of health in the NICU.
