Improving Pregnancy Outcomes
Posters in this session will describe the percent of children who were persistently overweight at kindergarten entry and completion of first grade by race and gender groups and compare data collected from a local research study with national trends on childhood obesity. The session will also discuss the socioemotional effects of paternal incarceration on school-aged children, the health and developmental problems found in a population of foster children ages birth to 5 years old, the implications for social policies of the links between chronic poverty and health during early childhood, and .the key socioeconomic indicators that may need to be considered when the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scale is used to measure adaptive behavior skills in a non-mentally retarded population of young children ages 6 months to 5 years. The session will discuss trends in infant mortality rate by race over the period 1960-2000 and demonstrate the measuring procedure and trend for excess black infant mortality rate.
Learning Objectives: 1. describe the change in overweight and risk for overweight between kindergarten and first grade by race, ethnicity and gender; 2. Discuss the socioemotional effects of paternal incarceration on school-aged children. 3. To prioritize risk factors for intervention programs designed for promoting health in children and adolescents. 4.
