ONLINE: 4th Meeting of Latin American DOHaD Chapter, 13-16 October 2020
Adverse conditions during critical periods of one's lifetime, such as conception, pregnancy, infancy and adolescence, are associated with an increased risk of chronic non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, chronic obstructive lung disease, mental illnesses , etc. This concept is called Developmental Origins of Health and Diseases (DOHaD), hypothesized by Dr. David Barker (1938 - 2013). In this regard, the recent and current outbreaks of important infectious diseases all over the world, transmitted by viruses whose surges are intimately related to environmental imbalances, have stressed the importance of looking at the human health beyond the human body. Particularly, those infections are capable of effecting human development over generations.
Thus, to promote network between DOHaD researchers and translate scientific data into societal welfare, the Latin American DOHaD Chapter, in association with the DOHaD Brazil Group and the Brazilian Physiological Society, are honored to announce the 4th Meeting of Latin American DOHaD Chapter, in joint with 4th International Symposium of DOHaD and Stress, as well as 2nd Colloquium Prof. Cesar Timo - Iaria. Under the motto “One World, One Health”, this event will be held next October 13-16 on the web. This joint meeting will bring together scientists, clinical researchers, obstetricians, pediatricians, public health professionals and policymakers from around the world to discuss and share exciting and cutting-edge knowledge in a complete online way.

2020 Meeting of the Canadian DOHaD Society
Venue: Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta
Date: 11-02-2020 to 12-02-2020
DOHaD CANADA is pleased to announce its 4th Annual Meeting to be held at the Banff Centre in Banff Alberta, on the 11th & 12th of February 2020.
This year, the DOHaD Canada scientific program will address new challenges for DOHaD in today’s environment. A detailed program will be released shortly. The meeting provides an important venue for information exchange and dissemination among Canadian DOHaD researchers, trainees, clinicians and policy leaders, and a forum for knowledge translation of the vastly relevant DOHaD research that is undertaken across Canada. This important event is expected to attract 120 participants and will showcase the work of trainees, new investigators and established DOHaD researchers. As we did last year, DOHaD Canada’s meeting has been scheduled immediately before the Canadian Perinatal Research Meeting (CNPRM) to ensure the best possible attendance and reach of our message.
The program will include Keynote addresses by Dr. Lucilla Poston, Head of the Department of Women and Children’s Health at King’s College London and Dr. Jed Friedman, Director of the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center.
