CCHD Consortium

Our Fall 2021 consortium series will be held on Monday afternoons from 2:00 – 3:15 PM Eastern Time. All talks will be online via Zoom. This semester’s theme will be:

Carolina Consortium on Human Development: New Faces and New Directions

The Carolina Consortium on Human Development (CCHD) is an interinstitutional and transdisciplinary training program for predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars that focuses on the principles of Developmental Science with the goal of understanding and reducing disparities in physical health and psychological well-being from conception through adulthood. Several new mentors have joined CCHD this year and we look forward to hearing from some of them this semester. Specifically, we will learn more about their research and ways in which developmental science has shaped their program of study. We hope that these talks will lead to new ideas, collaborations, and mentor-mentee relationships. Please join us in welcoming them!

Organizing Committee: Dr. Cathi Propper, Dr. Ayse Belger, Dr. Ron Seifer
