Nurturing the Developing Brain: Mapping the Future

07:15 - 08:30

This symposium, Nurturing the Developing Brain: Mapping the Future, is committed to expanding the understanding of childhood brain development by facilitating discussions between scientific experts and pediatric practitioners. Participants will gain a better understanding of the complexities around early brain development, particularly as it relates to the structural and functional connectivity of the brain and key nutrients required for young brain development.

*Breakfast will be provided

This symposium was co-developed with Wyeth Nutrition and was planned to achieve scientific integrity, objectivity and balance.

Developing a Continuum of Care: The Importance of Nutrition in the First 1000 Days

07:00 - 08:30

This symposium will be discussing a powerful role of nutrition in programming a child's development, metabolism and health for the future. The implications of early nutrition programming are huge - the differences in risk factors for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, in immune function and allergy risk, cognitive and behavioral outcomes. The potential for improving the health of future generations by appropriate nutrition in early life is enormous.

*Light Breakfast provided from 7:00 - 7:15.

This symposium was co-developed with Nestlé Nutrition Institute and was planned to achieve scientific integrity, objectivity and balance.

Plant Biotechnology - A Global Perspective on Genetically Engineered Crops

07:00 - 08:30

Professor Pamela Ronald is a world-recognized plant geneticist studying genes that control resistance to disease and tolerance to environmental stress.  Prof Ronald and Raoul Adamchak, her husband, authored Tomorrow’s Table – Organic Farming, Genetics, and the Future of Food. She brings a uniquely balanced, global perspective on the history of agricultural genetics, challenges facing agriculture today, and the promises, limitations, and sustainability of various technologies.  Prof. Ronald will provide this overview in the context of genetically improved crops available to farmers in less developed countries.

*Breakfast will be provided

This symposium was co-developed with Monsanto and was planned to achieve scientific integrity, objectivity and balance.

The Science of Multi-Sensorial Stimulation & the Role of Daily Routines in Healthy Baby Development

12:45 - 14:00

Please join us to learn the evidence on the importance of multisensorial experience in the first years of life to promote healthy baby development (cognitive, emotional, social, physical).  An expert faculty of 3 will share current research and discuss the critical role that daily routines in bathing, massage and sleep may play.  Participants can apply key learnings to clinical practice, helping parents benefit from specific, science-based suggestions and techniques to provide multisensorial interactions with their baby during daily routines.

*Lunch will be provided to the first 300 attendees.

This symposium was co-developed with JOHNSON'S Global Research & Development and was planned to achieve scientific integrity, objectivity and balance.
