ECHO Discovery Webinar: Fish consumption during pregnancy and impacts on child health

The June ECHO Discovery Webinar is scheduled for June 12 at 1 pm (ET).

Join us for three flash talks about fish consumption during pregnancy and its impacts on child health. Kristen Lyall, Emily Oken, and Margaret Karagas will speak about their study titled “Associations of maternal fish consumption and omega-3 supplement use during pregnancy with child autism-related outcomes: Results from the ECHO Program” and share new guidance on fatty acid supplements to prevent preterm birth. They will also highlight the recent National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine report “The Role of Seafood in Child Growth and Development” and the potential gaps the ECHO Program could address.
