ECN members are invited to sharpen your research communication skills by joining next the EASO Early Career Network (ECN) Board eLearning Hub event. Learn how to effectively engage scientific audiences and elevate your research impact.

This eLearning Hub event features Dr Jennifer Baker, Head of Lifecourse Epidemiology, Center for Clinical Research and Prevention, Copenhagen University Hospital-Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg, Denmark. Dr Jennifer Baker is an expert on the causes and consequences of body size and growth in childhood, with particular emphasis on childhood obesity.
