The HCRC’s second national conference will focus on the impact of health and early childhood development on school readiness and other educational outcomes. It is divided into three topic areas:

  1. Determinants of health disparities
  2. Effects of health interventions on child development
  3. Effects of national health policy on child development

The conference will provide a deeper understanding of scientific data relevant to current models of prevention and intervention in early childhood and the significance of their impact on the well-being of young children as they grow to adulthood. Specific outcomes include dissemination of findings to policy makers, further research as follow-up to data shared at the conference, and publication of a book of the conference proceedings.
