Chilly in Philly for SRCD

Several Texas Tech HDFS faculty members and graduate students participated in the biennial Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) conference, held March 19-21. The host city should “ring a bell.”

Though some parts of the country were starting to warm up in late March, Philadelphia still had some snow. There was also better weather during the weekend, however.

 

Dr. Malinda Colwell (left) and Ph.D. student Holly Wright presented a poster on their research into nutrition and child development in Malawi, Africa. Background information on this unique project is available in one of our earlier postings.

Meanwhile, Ph.D. student Jennifer Harris presented a poster (co-authored with her advisor, Dr. Sybil Hart) on their study of older siblings’ “expectant” status awaiting the arrival of a new brother or sister.

Anuradha Sastry, another doctoral student who works with Dr. Hart (and with Dr. Elizabeth Trejos-Castillo), presented on an intervention with infants in India, based on Dr. Hart’s book Lullaby Massage.

Finally, another of our faculty members, Dr. Yoojin Chae, ventured south of Center City to the famous intersection that hosts two of Philly’s leading cheese-steak restaurants.
