The scope of projects within this Program includes trajectories of health and mortality from pre-conception through the reproductive years, including birth outcomes, childhood and adolescence, the transition to adulthood, and middle age as well as trans-generational influences on health.
Specific areas of interest include:
- Interrelationships between fertility, fecundity, and health
- Interrelationships between assisted reproductive technologies and health
- Downstream effects of early intervention programs on later health outcomes
- Dynamic influences of the social, economic, political, institutional, cultural, and physical environments over the life course
- Work-family conflict and health
Health promotion interventions that take place within the workplace but that are unconnected to family processes are outside the scope of the Branch’s Program.
