On the 7th May, NCPHWR hosted the Researcher Symposium around the theme of healthy development.
The event provided an opportunity for delegates to learn more about the wide range of research carried out by the centre over the last year.
NCPHWR speakers covered research topics ranging from educational attainment and child mental health to teenage inactivity and mother and baby renal health.
Sam Dredge, Programme Manager for NCPHWR, outlined the importance of prevention research in this area and how early intervention during childhood and youth is most likely to break the cycle of health inequalities and of the increasing health, social and economic costs of long-term health conditions.
