The Global Child Development Group in collaboration with Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science at the New York Academy of Sciences, recently organized a meeting on “Integrating Nutrition and Early Childhood Interventions” held August 29-30, 2012 at the Academy’s headquarters in New York City. The goal of the meeting was to hear from a group of about 30 experts on recent advances in the area and to plan for a series of papers to be published as a special issue of the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences and presented at a larger meeting in April 2013. The meeting was organized around panels with short presentations and discussion and working groups to plan for the papers including deciding on topics and identifying additional persons as potential contributors. The organizing committee includes members of the GCDG secretariat and Dr Mandana Arabi, Director of the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science.
