The Aspen Children’s Forum: A Children-First Discovery Agenda

August 7, 2012

Predictive, Preventive and Personalized Care

Remarkable progress in pediatric research and discovery has led to major advances in children’s health, but there is still much work to be done. By highlighting past achievements and future discoveries within reach, we can begin to see the immense impact that pediatric research can have on children and adults, both locally and globally. What would our overall research and development priorities be if we were to put children first?
