WEBINAR The First 2000 Days: Conception to Age 5 – Messages from the new evidence to inform the delivery of primary health care

Wed 27th May @ 7:00 pm

Sydney North Health Network (SNHN) invites GPs, Practice Nurses, Pharmacists and Allied Health Professionals to a webinar and Q&A session on the importance of the First 2000 Days of Life. This education will provide an overview of recent additions to the evidence on why the early years of life from conception to age five are integral to health and wellbeing outcomes not only in childhood but also our lifespan. Advances in our understanding of the mechanisms through which antenatal and early childhood brain development influences physical and mental health in childhood, adolescence, adulthood and even in future generations will be explored.
