Bridges to Fatherhood

November 20, 2020

Detail

Fathers play a unique role in their children’s lives and development, and plenty of research backs up the importance of a father's presence. But when it comes to preparing for parenthood, the focus is heavily skewed to preparing mothers for motherhood. So how are fathers getting the support and training they need to be successful -- especially in this age of pandemic parenting? And how does this all come together with the additional challenge of being a father who isn’t living with their children? It's not easy. In this episode, we learn how nurse scientist and researcher Wrenetha Julion, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, CNL, is innovating to build and bolster the involvement of African American fathers who live apart from their children through the Building Bridges to Fatherhood Program and through an exciting new Father Inclusive Prenatal Care program.
