The Future of Families and Child Well-being Study and Opportunities to Study Multiple Dimensions of Health
September 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The New Jersey Alliance for Clinical and Translational Science (NJ ACTS) is holding a seminar at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, as part of its 2023 Special Populations Core Seminar Series. The following is information provided by NJ ACTS:
“The Future of Families and Child Well-being Study and Opportunities to Study Multiple Dimensions of Health”
Presented by Sarah Pachman, Princeton University Bendheim-Thoman Center for Research on Child and Family Well-being
Sarah Pachman is the director of research and policy at Princeton University’s Bendheim-Thoman Center for Research on Child and Family Well-being. She received a Ph.D. in social work from Rutgers. Her research aims to understand the relationship between childhood contexts – primarily experiences of economic and housing hardship and exposure to proximate neighborhood conditions – and adolescent well-being and how policies may serve as levers to mitigate potentially adverse conditions.
In this seminar, Pachman will give a brief overview of the Future of Families and Child Well-being Study, a longitudinal birth cohort study that has followed families for nearly a quarter century. She will review available survey and collaborative datasets including biological indicators and medical records. She will also provide a summary of analyses that use these data to examine the physical and mental health of mothers and their children using the various components of the study.
Online via Zoom
