Human Capital Research Collaborative Fall Conference


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:

  • Determinants of health disparities
  • Effects of health interventions on child development
  • 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.
