Adverse conditions during early life (conception, pregnancy, infancy and childhood) are associated with an increased risk of chronic non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, chronic obstructive lung disease, mental illnesses, among others. This concept is called Developmental Origins of Health and Diseases (DOHaD), hypothesized by Dr. David Barker (1938 – 2013). Interestingly, beneficial interventions at pregnancy and childhood are starting to arise as an exciting field to improve public health across generations.

To promote network between DOHaD researchers and translate scientific data into societal welfare, the Graduate Program in Health Sciences of the Federal University of Maranhão and the Ibero-American DOHaD Chapter are honored to announce the 5th International Symposium on Metabolic Programming and Stress & 2nd Meeting of Ibero-American DOHaD Chapter to be held on November 2-4, 2016, in São Luís, Maranhão, Brazil. This joint meeting will bring together scientists, clinical researchers, obstetricians, pediatricians, public health professionals and policymakers from around the world to discuss and share exciting and cutting-edge knowledge.
