There is growing evidence that childhood and particularly early childhood environment can have lifetime consequences. Infancy and childhood can represent a “critical period” after which remedial intervention to alter subsequent outcomes is either ineffective or increasingly expensive. In this conference, researchers from a cohort study of older people (TILDA) and children (Growing Up in Ireland) will present evidence on the impact of child adversity on later health and well-being from a life-course perspective and consider the policy implications.
Keynote speakers:

Two internationally renowned Keynote speakers will address the conference.
The first is Prof. Diana Kuh, one of the leading figures in life-course epidemiology. Professor Kuh is Director of the 1946 Birth Cohort in Britain and Director of the MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing. Prof. Kuh will discuss ‘childhood influences on lifelong health and ageing: evidence from the British 1946 birth cohort study’.

The second is Dominic Richardson, an OECD social policy specialist on social spending in childhood who will discuss variation across countries in the pattern of social spending on childhood and its effect on outcomes.

Thursday 14th November Prof. Kathleen Kiernan, Prof. of Social Policy and Demography, Univerity of York
