Numerous efforts have been initiated to promote responsible fatherhood as a way to enhance children’s development. However, less attention has been paid to the role of fathers during pregnancy through the first year of life. This workshop brings together researchers and community representatives to address the impact of fathers’ involvement on pregnancy, birth outcomes, and the health and development of children during the first year of life.
This workshop also includes a new investigator poster session, which will be held on September 25, 2013, at the same location.
Attendance at this workshop is by invitation only.
