NJLEND is New Jersey’s Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities program, and is a component of The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. NJLEND provides graduate-level interdisciplinary, leadership training aimed at preparing the next generation of health and allied health leaders to address the needs of children and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), health disparities, cultural competence, related developmental disabilities, and other maternal and child health populations. NJLEND Fellows and faculty represent seven disciplines across Rutgers and The Boggs Center’s Interdisciplinary Traineeship program and educates future health and allied health professionals in the field of disability. NJLEND also provides continuing education to families and Maternal and Child Health professionals, including this Symposium, and provides technical assistance to Title V and community programs.

Dr. Notterman’s keynote, “How Social Disparities Get Under the Skin — Genetic and Epigenetic Models,” will offer an explanation for how the environment interacts with inherited predisposition to create robust and durable changes in the course of children’s development. This symposium will celebrate the accomplishments of the 2017-2018 class of NJLEND Fellows and Boggs Center Interdisciplinary Trainees. The NJLEND Fellows and Boggs Center Trainees will present their Leadership Projects during a poster session at the beginning and the end of the symposium. The Poster Gallery Walk and Networking Session will begin at 9:00 AM.

We look forward to seeing you at this exciting networking opportunity for current and future Maternal and Child Health professionals. Please register by Monday April 27th, so that we can hold your space.
