Global child poverty: Can neuroscience help?

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - 1:00pm to 5:30pm


You are invited to a pair of workshops inspired by the Lancet report, Advancing Early Childhood Development: from Science to Scale, led by Penn faculty including report co-author Jere Behrman (Economics) and Dr. Sebastian Lipina (National Scientific and Technical Research Council of Argentina) with participating faculty and students from throughout Penn.

Workshop II:

Can neuroscience help efforts to alleviate global child poverty?

We will review the current state of child development programs and measures globally, and assess the relevance of poverty neuroscience, developed primarily in high-income countries, to understanding and addressing child poverty in middle- and low-income countries, and specifically consider the role assigned to neuroscience in the influential Lancet series, Advancing Early Childhood Development: from Science to Scale.
