Rebecca J Chibnall MDAssistant Professor, Dermatology, School of Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO
Dr. Chibnall’s primary public health interest is diaper need. Diaper need occurs when a family requires more diapers than they can afford. She believes that diaper need can be a source of toxic stress for impoverished families. To date, there has only been one peer reviewed publication on diaper need in the literature. She is interested in the relationship between diaper need and parental mood disorders as well. In addition, Dr. Chibnall is interested in the environmental and public health effects of disposable diapers.
