The Canadian DOHaD Society is a globally connected network focused on creating, communicating and translating the latest knowledge on early development to improve the health and well-being of Canadians today and into the future and promote the importance of maternal health and well-being on a global platform. Our Society engages in social, biological, clinical and economic research focusing on:
1. How environmental factors during the early life (preconception-childhood) interact with development to place individuals on trajectories that impact life-long health, learning and social function.
2. Development of strategies that prevent or reverse negative life-course outcomes, promoting health and wellness and allowing all Canadians to attain their full potential.
Recognizing that trainees are our future, as part of our mission, our network is strongly committed to creating the best transdisciplinary training environment promoting academic excellence and supporting tomorrow’s research leaders and policy makers.
