The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) invites you to our Annual Symposium, The New Science of Child Development presented by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR).
Our Symposium on early childhood development will explore in depth the multi-faceted factors that shape the health, education, and psychological well-being of our children. Dr. W. Thomas Boyce, as well as eight multidisciplinary experts will document different facets of this new knowledge, examine how it helps us understand the role of early environment in development, and discuss the extent to which it can be harnessed to guide current and new programs and policy in Canada. Please join this very important discussion on how we can improve the development and quality of life of our future generations.
 
This event is open to the public.
