The CHILD Cohort Study (CHILD) is a prospective longitudinal birth cohort study. CHILD researchers are actively following the study participants over time as they grow and develop—from mid-pregnancy into childhood and adolescence. CHILD is designed this way so it can collect information at time points that are considered to be especially critical to the health and development of children.

Join Piushkumar Mandhane for a seminar on the CHILD study as an example of precision health research.

Objectives for this seminar will include:

  • Recognize the breadth and depth of the CHILD study data: The who, what, where, when, why and how
  • Describe some examples of how the CHILD study data has already been used
  • Identify opportunities for collaboration and research

Presented by:

  • Piushkumar Mandhane, associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics and Edmonton site leader for the CHILD study
  • Mandhane's main area of research is on the impact of childhood sleep and sleep disruption on learning, growth and development
