Bridget Young PhD, CLC will discuss how obesity and insulin resistance impact breast milk composition and the downstream affects on the recipient infant. She will also discuss her work with milk banks and the study of the nutrient variation in donor milk.
Kirsi Jarvinen-Seppo, MD, PhD will discuss the role of early environmental exposures, including human milk component,s in the establishment of the microbiome and infant immune system, and how those impact tolerance and development of allergic diseases. Her work on an NIH-funded birth cohort where Old Order Mennonites and Rochester families serve as model populations at different risk for allergic diseases will help us better understand the aspects of developmental immunology pertinent for future strategies in primary prevention of atopic diseases.
