In what ways are children particularly hard hit by poverty? How does growing up poor affect early-life development? Lisa A. Gennetian joins EconoFact Chats to answer these questions, drawing on preliminary results from ‘Baby’s First Years,’ a large-scale, multi-decade interdisciplinary study on the impact of poverty on brain development among infants.
A Principal Investigator at ‘Baby’s First Years,’ Lisa is also the Pritzker Professor of Early Learning Policy Studies at the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University.
