Summary
"On January 24, 2008, the Roundtable on Health Disparities, in collaboration with the Board on Children, Youth, and Families of the National Research Council and the IOM, held a workshop at the Morehouse School of Medicine's Louis W. Sullivan National Center for Primary Care Auditorium in Atlanta, Georgia. The Roundtable brought together a diverse group of experts from a variety of fields to discuss the relationship between socioeconomic conditions early in life and later health outcomes. Life course epidemiology has added a further dimension to our understanding of the social determinants of health by showing an association between early socioeconomic conditions and adult health related behaviors as well as adult morbidity and mortality. Realizing that the foundations of adult health and adult health behaviors are laid prenatally and early in childhood, the Roundtable's workshop focused on (1) describing the evidence linking early childhood life conditions and adult health outcomes; (2) discussing the contribution of early childhood conditions to observed racial and ethnic disparities in health; (3) highlighting successful models that engage both community factors and health care factors that affect life course development; and (4) facilitating discussion of these issues among stakeholders in academia, community development, health care, business, and philanthropy."
