UCLA Receives $46 Thousand Check From the HER Foundation For Groundbreaking HG Research

UCLA checkThe HER (Hyperemesis Education & Research) Foundation proudly presented a check for more than $46 thousand to Dr. Marlena Fejzo, geneticist, of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA on Friday, September 14th. The donation will fund continued groundbreaking research on a relatively unknown, debilitating pregnancy condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum, or HG.

The disease rarely makes headlines, yet it afflicts hundreds of thousands of pregnant women around the globe annually, leaving them severely malnourished and dehydrated due to relentless nausea and vomiting that lands many in the hospital, and sometimes results in death if left untreated.
