Summary
"The well-being of our nations children has great impacts on our nations ability to thrive. We know that the well-being of adults has roots in early life. In order to increase our understanding of these processes, we need to study how our nations children learn and develop across the life course from before they are born until adulthood. There is a consensus among many leading U.S. scientists that a nationally representative birth cohort study that begins in pregnancy has unique value for major advancements in our understanding of how children in this nation grow into healthy, successful, and happy adults. Efforts currently under way are not nationally representative or are insufficiently comprehensive in their focus, particularly with respect to assessing the environment across the life course. We now live in a time where the current technologies allow for collection of information in a manner that is cost effective, less burdensome to study participants, and secure. We can also process information more quickly and securely, allowing society to quickly reap the benefits of this research. Learning how all aspects of the environment work together to impact lifelong health and well-being has the potential to inform and transform evidence- based policies and practices to improve the prosperity of the nation. In this two-part National Academy of Medicine Perspectives series, 17 experts discuss the reasons why a national birth cohort study is important for the future of health in the United States and how such a study could be designed in a way that is multidisciplinary, focuses on the main drivers of health, engages communities, employs a diverse set of data sources, and includes innovative techniques in data analysis"--Publisher's description
