Shaping the Developing Brain: Prenatal Through Early Childhood

November 11 - 13, 2014 The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented by The Aspen Brain Forum Foundation, Science Translational Medicine, and the New York Academy of Sciences

The future success of a child is crucially dependent upon the earliest stages of brain development, during pregnancy and infancy. Scientific research from multiple academic and medical disciplines has shown that the changes that take place during this early period of brain development can profoundly shape the rest of a child's life, and affect long-term health, well-being, and cognitive ability.

As a child grows — from inside the womb through the first few years of life — massive changes take place in the connectivity and plasticity of the brain. Deepening our understanding of the connection between a child’s early behavioral milestones and their brain’s structural and neural development is a critical first step for promoting healthy brain development, as well as improving treatments for developmental and learning disorders. Additionally, functional or dysfunctional social and family relationships, socioeconomic status/poverty, stress, nutrition, and other environmental experiences produce lasting effects on the brain and impact how children will respond to adversity, how they will interact with their peers, and whether they will succeed in school and throughout their lives.

This 2.5-day conference will convene leading researchers with expertise in the fundamental stages of early brain development, and will focus on the connection between research and improved outcomes for children.  Conference speakers will present the latest discoveries from cognitive neuroscience and experimental psychology regarding typical and atypical development of human learning and memory, emotion, and social behavior in the first few years of life. They will also explore socioeconomic, family, and nutritional factors that can affect brain and behavior.  The conference will highlight educational practices, health and nutrition practices, applied research, and government policy with the potential for enhancing healthy brain development and improving outcomes for at-risk children.

This conference will feature a dedicated session: Spotlight on Nutrition and Brain Development, co-presented with The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science, a program of the New York Academy of Sciences.

Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman 4th International Conference on Pediatric Chronic Diseases, Disability and Human Development
Israel
01/20/2015

Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman 4th International Conference on Pediatric Chronic Diseases, Disability and Human Development

January 20-23, 2015 Jerusalem, Israel

The Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman 4th International Conference on Pediatric Chronic Diseases, Disability and Human Development will be held in Jerusalem on 20-23 January, 2015.

The high rates of children with chronic diseases and disabilities impose a major challenge on the health, welfare and educational systems to help these children to integrate with their peers and later on be a productive part of our society, therefore, this year we directed our focus towards breaking the barriers and building bridges between the children, the families and the community. Furthermore, our society becomes more and more multicultural which requires cultural adjustments when approaching these children and their families.

Leading health and welfare care professionals from Israel and around the world will lecture and conduct symposia on a wide range of topics related to pediatric and adolescent chronic diseases, disabilities and human development.

Specific topics to be addressed include: the management of children and adolescents with chronic diseases, pain management, intellectual disability, autism, eating disorders, mental illness, impact of chronic disease and disability on human development, shared decision-making, improved quality of care and strategies for ensuring the social and educational enfranchisement of children with chronic diseases or people with disabilities, all these towards growing the child and part of the adult society.

The lectures and workshops of the Conference are geared to professionals from all disciplines involved in the care of children and adolescents with chronic diseases and people with disabilities as well as those involved in the field of human development and public health.

6th International Academic Conference on Environmental and Occupational Medicine
China
10/16/2014

6th International Academic Conference on Environmental and Occupational Medicine

16-18 October 2014 Suzhou, China

Environment and human health are closely related. One recent trend is the integration of environmental and occupational medicine, two of the hottest subjects in public health. Since 2002, the Journal of Environmental and Occupational Medicine (JEOM) and Shanghai Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in alliance with various institutions such as  Environmental Health Perspectives, the California Department of Public Health, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have successfully held five international academic conferences on environmental and occupational medicine which have been well received by both domestic and international experts and peers. A wide spectrum of participants were invited to exchange ideas on themes including “Environment, Ecology, Occupation, and Healthy Cities”, “Environment, Occupation, and Protection of Human Resources in the Rapid Development of Economy”, “Healthy Environment and Harmonious Society”, and “Environment and Health with Emphasis on Environment-related Effects of Climate Change, Urbanization, and Occupation on Public Health”. The proceedings of the third to fifth international conferences (2004, 2006, 2010) are indexed by Conference Proceedings Citation Index—Science, which has effectively boosted the journal’s and the conferences’ international impact.

We are honored to invite you to the 6th International Academic Conference on Environmental and Occupational Medicine to be held in Suzhou, China,  16-18 October 2014. The JEOM 30th Anniversary and the East China Occupational Health Congress will be held in tandem. Participants will share the latest findings in these fields including but not limited to environmental and occupational medicine, environmental protection, meteorology, agriculture, and safety supervision, and will look to future trends with the aim of building a stronger professional collaboration and eventually promoting human health.

The conference will take place from 21-24 April 2015 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, and will be hosted by the World Association for Disaster and Emergency Medicine in conjunction with EMSSA.

2015 is an important year for WCDEM, as it will be the first time that this key conference is held in Africa. Disasters can strike anywhere, but often cause the greatest devastation when they hit communities that are not prepared to handle the resulting devastation. With this in mind, the theme for the 2015 conference will be Creating Capacity, Building Resilience. We will focus on utilizing prevention and preparedness to minimize the impact of disasters and hasten recovery by developing more disaster resilient communities.

Air Pollution Meteorology and Human Health Symposium

5 January 2015 Phoenix, Arizona.

A one-day Symposium on Air Pollution Meteorology and Human Health sponsored by the American Meteorology Society (AMS), and organized by the AMS Committee for Meteorological Aspects of Air Pollution and the AMS Board on Environment and Health will be held 5 January 2015, as part of the 95th AMS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.  Preliminary programs, registration, hotel, and general information will be posted on the AMS Web site (http://www.ametsoc.org/meet/annual/) in late-September 2014.

The theme for the 2015 AMS Annual Meeting is “Fulfilling the Vision of Weather, Water, and Climate Information for Every Need, Time, and Place”. In our modern society, people, businesses, and governments increasingly depend on weather and climate information to anticipate the quality of the air that we breathe and the consequent heath effects. This information on air pollution and health effects influences decisions that range from the development of local, state, and national policies to an individual decisions regarding outdoor activities or anticipating and preparing for the impacts that these activities will have on one’s health.  Developing the necessary science and technologies to produce this information requires an integrated multi-disciplinary solution that involves a combination of atmospheric science and biomedical science / public health expertise.  The goal of this symposium is to bring together the scientists and researchers required to solve these challenging problems in a forum that encourages the exchange of information across these scientific disciplines.
