A broad array of speakers will provide updates and a framework to guide discussion of current and emerging factors contributing to infant and child endangerment, effective interventions, expanded social media communication tools, knowledge gaps, and research needs. Speakers and discussants include research and policy institutions, practitioners, university researchers, government agencies and private consulting organizations.
