FAU Virtual Frontiers in Science: Inequities in Infancy: Race and Infant Health and Development
Join Brenda Jones Harden, Ph.D., Alison Richman Professor for Children and Families, University of Maryland for this Frontiers in Science Virtual Lecture.

This presentation will examine racial differences in the health and development of American infants, with a particular focus on inequities experienced by very young African American children. The contribution of maternal characteristics such as perinatal processes, history of trauma, experiences of stress, mental health challenges, and socioeconomic vulnerability will be addressed. The presentation will also consider the roles of structural racism and perception of discrimination in these racial inequities. Potential strategies for promoting more positive health and developmental outcomes for this group of infants will be discussed.
