About this Event

Please note that this conference will be held entirely ONLINE and that attendance will not be in-person.

About APrON

Beginning in 2009, APrON is a longitudinal cohort study of mothers, fathers and their children followed since pregnancy. The cohort is maintained by a team of expert researchers and clinicians from many disciplines, including biostatistics, child development, epidemiology, family medicine, genetics, neonatology, nursing, nutrition, psychiatry, and psychology.

Our vision is to improve the health and long-term potential of parents and children in Alberta. We seek to understand the impact of nutrition, mental health and many other factors (e.g. social support, genes) on children's neurodevelopment.

We are excited that our 2020 APrON Conference will celebrate 10 years of APrON research! We hope to see you there!

Location: Conference is now being held online!
