On August 2, 2017, CHILD investigator Dr. Meghan Azad (University of Manitoba) participated in a panel discussion organized by the CIHR’s Institute of Human Development, Child & Youth Health (IHDCYH) on breastfeeding and children’s health.

In the event, Dr. Azad discussed her past and current work on breastfeeding and the microbiome, describing how it leverages biological samples and data from CHILD.

The panel featured five CIHR-supported researchers talking about how their work aims to help improve the health of babies and breastfeeding mothers. It was organized in support of World Breastfeeding Week 2017 (August 1-7; observed October 1-7 in Canada).
