Urban Health Research Conference April 14 and 15, 2021 Wayne State University College of Nursing's Urban Health 2021 Contemporary Issues in Urban Health: Social Determinants of Health and Intersectionality in Vulnerable Populations research conference was held virtually in the Whova event app with Zoom meetings. Researchers, practitioners, students and community partners from all disciplines will explore social determinants of health and how the interconnected nature of social and political identities contribute to discrimination and disadvantages that affects health. Keynote addresses, plenary and breakout sessions will have a wide range of topics and will be presented by nationally and internationally respected nurse scientists. https://nursing.wayne.edu SUBSCRIBE: https://go.wayne.edu/subscribe About Wayne State University: Wayne State University (WSU) is a public research university located in Detroit, Michigan.

Brain Development in Preterm Infants Video – Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Terrie Inder, MD, MBChB, Chair of the Department of Pediatric Newborn Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, explains the impact of premature birth on neonatal brain development. One in nine infants is born prematurely or around 12 percent of all births in the United States. Preterm infants may be at risk for learning problems later in life. Around 50 to 60 percent of prematurely born children will have to repeat a grade by the time they reach middle school. Dr. Inder describes how brain imaging can help predict the likelihood of learning problems. Based on these findings, additional therapy and support services may be recommended to help preterm infants avoid future learning difficulties. Environment can also play a critical role in brain development of preterm infants. Dr. Inder describes research examining the impact of auditory stimulation on neonatal brain development. Dr. Inder and colleagues found that babies exposed to environments where there was a lot of talking experienced greater language development versus babies exposed to a quiet environment. Follow up study of these children two years later found that the children in environments with more language exposure had nearly ten additional IQ points in language development compared to those who had been in quiet environments.
