impactAfrica is hosting a series of webinars to inform journalists about key development issues. The second in the webinar series will focus on early childhood growth and development, an important topic that touches on health, nutrition, and education.
Participants will discuss how journalists can use measurements of children’s health and development to report on poverty and its negative, lasting impacts into adulthood.
The webinar will review evidence on the importance of early nutrition and stimulation for young children, the effectiveness of different approaches, and the programs being studied to address these issues. Participants will have the opportunity to ask World Bank experts questions about childhood development issues.
When: Thursday, March 17 at 5 p.m. SAST
Expert: Leslie K. Elder, a World Bank Senior Nutrition Specialist in the Health, Nutrition and Population Group, and Emanuela Galasso, a World Bank Senior Economist in the Development Research Group
Moderator: Brenda Wilson, former NPR health journalist and ICFJ Knight Fellow
