Description: The National Children’s Study (NCS) will examine the effects of the environment, as broadly defined to include factors such as air, water, diet, sound, family dynamics, community and cultural influences, and genetics on the growth, development, and health of children across the United States, following them from before birth until age 21 years. The goal of the study is to improve the health and well-being of children.

Given the importance of specific influences (for example, family dynamics, community, culture) on immigrant children’s health, the National Children’s Study Program Office proposes a meeting of subject matter experts to have a dialogue on topics related to immigration as it pertains to the NCS. Subject matter experts will provide comments on potential research questions, process, and measurement strategies that could inform NCS Main Study development and how the health and developmental trajectories of children of immigrants might be addressed.
