University Presents Lecture on Birth Study
15 July 13
The University of Bradford will present findings from the recent Born in Bradford birth study in a public lecture later this month.
New evidence from the Born in Bradford birth cohort study reveal that children born to older mothers or parents who are blood relatives are at greater risk of being born with severe birth defects.
The talk will consider the study’s implications for children’s health and development, and its potential to shape health interventions in the City of Bradford and beyond.
The lecture, “Born in Bradford – Exploring health inequalities in the Born in Bradford birth cohort study”, will be delivered by Neil Small, Professor of Health Research at the University of Bradford and one of the leading researchers for the Born in Bradford project.
The lecture will take place at The Barn, in the Horton Building of the University of Bradford, from 5pm to 6pm on Tuesday 23 July.
Tickets are free of charge, but must be booked in advance by visiting http://born-in-bradford.eventbrite.co.uk/.
