Research Overview
Dr. Ebony Boyce Carter is an assistant professor at Washington University School of Medicine and practices maternal fetal medicine in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Her research focuses on 1) Evidence-based methods to optimize management of medical complications in pregnancy, and 2) Translating knowledge of adverse pregnancy outcomes into risk-reduction strategies for future cardiovascular disease. She uses community-based participatory research methods to study innovative health care delivery strategies for disadvantaged women. She is conducting a randomized trial to determine whether women with diabetes who participate in group prenatal care have improved pregnancy outcomes compared to those who receive individual prenatal care.

Dr. Carter earned her undergraduate degree in human biology with honors from Stanford University, master of public health in health policy from the University of Michigan and medical degree from Duke University.  She completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Harvard integrated program at Brigham and Women’s/Massachusetts General Hospitals and fellowship training in maternal fetal medicine at Washington University School of Medicine.
