• 11:00 a.m. New Findings on Developmental Origins of Adult Health Dr. Michael Georgieff There is increasing evidence that many diseases adults face have their origins during development, meaning childhood, the fetal period, or even prior to conception. Growth rates of the fetus and the young child can influence the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure in adulthood. It now appears that similar principles apply for mental health. Dr. Georgieff will address recent and ongoing research about the early impact of preconception through childhood conditions on adult health. Dr. Georgieff received his medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine and is the director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Follow-Up Clinic, the Neonatal Nutrition Support Service, and the Center for Neurobehavioral Development. He has published over 200 papers and written and contributed to several book chapters. Kimball Foster, Program Development Committee
