Abby Mutic, BS, BSN, MSN

Emory University

Abby Mutic felt compelled to become a researcher, close the clinical research gap that persists, and translate literature into clinical practice changes. Abby’s unique academic experiences have provided her with a diverse background with which to pursue a doctoral education. She chose to enhance my undergraduate biology studies with psychology, leading to a focused biobehavioral discipline. Later, Abby focused on maternal-child nursing receiving a MSN specializing in nurse-midwifery. Working with high poverty rates and women with poor health awareness, she developed an interest in identifying chemical risk factors adversely affecting pregnant women and children. While at Emory, Abby has been building foundational research skills in data collection, management, analysis, and dissemination.
