Professor Jonathan Morris AM, Professor of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Sydney Medical School - Northern, Director, Kolling Institute of Medical Research

Events occurring in pregnancy have profound significance for both the mother and her baby. For the mother, pregnancy is like a stress test and provides insights into the likelihood of long term health complications such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.

For the baby the environment in the uterus and the timing of birth affects short term and long term health and development. This talk will outline the fascinating health implications of pregnancy and some of the research that informs us about the best time to be born.

VENUE: The University of Sydney Business School, Stockland Building, Level 17/133 Castlereagh Street, Sydney
