Institute for Anthropological Research is honoured to host the XVth International Congress of Auxology, entitled Growth and health – a life course perspective, of the International Society for the Study of Human Growth and Clinical Auxology (ISGA), that will be held from May 27th to 31st in Amadria Park, Šibenik.
Since the inaugural meeting in Rome in 1977, ISGA has been holding triennial meetings in major cities in Europe, the Americas and Asia. ISGA has taken these opportunities to discuss the latest research in the field of human growth and development, in its clinical and non-clinical aspects, with scientists and clinicians from across the globe.
The XVth Congress will feature more than 15 scientific sessions covering current research in human growth from conception to maturity. The first 1000 days forms a natural initial focus along with the growth and development implications of infant feeding, exercise in childhood and adolescence, the effects of environmental pollution, and the diagnosis and treatment of growth disorders. For human biologists, anthropologists, educators, neonatologists, paediatricians, family practitioners and health workers dealing with all aspects of child and adolescent development this congress will be a great opportunity to review the current research and future directions.
