Dr. Martin Guhn – Early Child Development: a ‘Determinant of Health’

October 24th, 2017

Recognized as a leading research institute in Canada in early child development, the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) is a collaborative, interdisciplinary research network, based at the School of Population and Public Health at UBC. Connecting researchers from B.C., Canada and around the world, HELP’s work addresses complex early child development (ECD) issues. Through one of its three core thrusts, Developmental Trajectories, HELP has built a rich database of child development information that helps better understand children’s development over time to inform policy and practice. In this presentation, Martin Guhn will speak about early child development as a ‘determinant of health’, and showcase findings and new directions from HELP’s research projects: the Early Development Instrument, the Childhood Experiences Questionnaire, and Middle Years Instrument.
