4303.0 Maternal, and Infant Health

Tuesday, October 30, 2012: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Session Objectives: Participants will identify direct pathways and indirect pathways in which prenatal smoke exposure may influence reproductive hormones in young girls. Learn about the importance of seasonal vaccination uptake by pregnant women and describe disparities in influenza vaccination uptake by pregnant women. Describe risks associated with preterm delivery and demonstrate that some CVD risk factors increase risk of preterm delivery. Compare between lifestyle and physical activity interventions aimed for obesity prevention and evaluate the impact of nutritional intervention in promoting nutritional knowledge and healthy eating. Identify and discuss the long-term health outcomes of “early term birth” (gestational age 37-38 weeks) relative to later term birth.
