Watch Video: Webcast from the 10/28/2010 Workshop
On October 28, 2010, the Board on Children, Youth, and Families convened a workshop to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this report. The workshop reviewed advances in scientific research as well as opportunities to build on existing best practices and enhance the transition into a new era in early childhood policy. The workshop featured presentations by Jack Shonkoff from Harvard University, chair of the original study, Deborah Phillips from Georgetown University, the study director, and other researchers, government officials, and leaders in the field of early childhood health and development. The participants focused on the progress made in integrating child development research, neuroscience, and molecular genetics as well as how science can be mobilized to promote innovation and shape public policy in the next decade.
