Nikita Kalluri is a pediatric resident in the Boston Combined Residency Program, working at Boston Medical Center and Boston Children's Hospital. She is a member of the Urban Health and Advocacy Track. She will be starting a Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship program in the summer of 2021, and is particularly interested in the role of social determinants of health in the perinatal setting. While a student at BUSM (Class of 2018), she helped lead a quality improvement project to increase breast milk use for preterm infants, both at Boston Medical Center and on a Massachusetts statewide level. More recently as a resident, she is examining the role of maternal primary language on preterm infant outcomes. Her goal is to develop a career focused on clinical care of high-risk newborns combined with health services research to improve health for underserved populations in the NICU.
