Consortium on Infant Crying

Join fellow clinicians, researchers and other stakeholders for an afternoon consortium on Infant Crying. The UCSF Research Development Office’s Team Science Program is organizing this event in collaboration with Dr. Amy Gelfand.

The idea for this event is based on several questions: Crying is such a basic thing that babies do, but how much do we really understand about it? What makes one baby cry more than another? What are the best ways to measure how much a baby cries? How should we manage excessive infant crying (i.e. infant colic)?  How can we help reduce parental frustration and minimize risk of shaken baby syndrome?

We have identified “champions” with diverse perspectives and expertise on infant crying including, neurology, neonatology, nursing, pediatrics, and child abuse prevention. Champions will give brief talks during the first segment of the event and lead small-group round-tables during the second segment. 

A networking reception will follow.

Space is limited, please register early.
