AHSC SEMINAR SERIES 2021
Prenatal and early life influences on child health
Environmental factors and nutrition during pregnancy and the early years of a child’s life can have significant effects on health, sometimes extending into late childhood and even adult life. In this seminar two experts will discuss their research into the influence of some of these exposures, whether experienced in utero, in the newborn baby or in a child’s early years and the impact on neonatal care and child health.
