Maureen Phipps and Stephen BukaCommencement weekend would not be complete without the annual School of Public Health forum. This year did not disappoint, and on Saturday, May 23rd an interdisciplinary panel of faculty from the School of Public Health, Alpert Medical School, Hasbro Children's Hospital, and Women & Infants Hospital participated in Maternal and Child Health – The importance of a great start! The panel of talented researchers vowed to make Rhode Island the healthiest place in the world for children. The forum highlighted just a portion of the important work being done by illustrating how maternal exposures, genetics, the physical environment and social experiences of children set the stage for health and development throughout early life.
