Discussion on Childhood Growth and Later Outcomes, Policy Implications and Treatment of Short Stature
Growth and development during the fetal and postnatal periods as well as during the first 2 years of life are important for short and long-term health. There are many growth drivers during this phase of life, among them are nutrition, genetic and epigenetic factors, and hormonal regulation. Prof. M.Gillman, Sir P. Gluckman and Prof. R. Rosenfeld edited this edition of the workshop book series that covers very prominent questions, e.g. how early infant feeding influences long-term growth and development, and how inadequate nutrition is related to health issues such as obesity and malnutrition.
