Children's Health & Discovery Initiative Seminar Series

Wednesday, November 28, 2018
Bryce B. Reeve, PhD

The goal of the Children’s Health & Discovery Initiative (CHDI) is to foster multidisciplinary and innovative research that will positively impact childhood and lifelong health. Efforts in four key research focus areas (genes and biology, physical environment, social and economic factors, and health and behavior needs) will inform prevention, risk screening, and treatment, as well as provide training opportunities for the next generation of pediatrician-scientists to learn from Duke’s cadre of experts. As part of our goal of fostering multidisciplinary collaborations, the CHDI is holding seminar/brainstorming sessions, which we’ve termed “Great Minds Think for Kids”. These sessions will include a 40-minute research-in-progress talk from a guest speaker, followed by a 40-minute brainstorming/group discussion session led by the guest speaker and a member of the CHDI scientific leadership.

Details about the December seminar/brainstorming session follow:
