With a focus on infant outcomes, data from several sources are compared and contrasted during this session to understand their relationship to pregnancy and maternal factors. A wide range of factors are considered including maternal alcohol consumption and an increasingly important area, lead exposure. Registry data are used to explore these associations and include data from US military families and KIDSCount.
Session Objectives: Describe relevant infant outcomes. Identify key infant findings. Contrast the findings from different sources of infant health data.
