Given the importance of specific influences (such as, family dynamics, community, and culture) on immigrant children’s health, the National Children’s Study Program Office is hosting a meeting of subject matter experts to encourage a dialogue on topics related to immigration as it pertains to the Study. These subject matter experts will provide feedback on potential research questions, processes, and measurement strategies that could inform the Study on how the health and developmental trajectories of children of immigrants might be addressed.
Symposium participants and attendees will include members of the National Children’s Study, the NICHD, and HHS staff as well as research and policy experts from related fields. Attendance at this conference is by invitation only. There will be a live videocast of the symposium for those who are unable to attend in person.
