The Bowen Center is proud to be partnering with Dr. Funches, Assistant Professor at IU School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics and neonatologist at Riley Hospital for Children, in the Indy Fathers’ Health Study.

We are looking for men who are: 
– 18 or older 
– With a partner who is pregnant or gave birth within the last six months 
– Live in the Indianapolis metropolitan area 

Participating in this study will include completing two surveys and participating a 90-minute focus group discussion.
