Invited Panelist


April 4-5, 2024 

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The goal of this meeting, hosted by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the National Institute on Mental Health (NIMH), is to discuss the current state of, and future directions for, research on the positive and negative impacts of technology and digital media (TDM) on the development and mental health outcomes of infants, children, and adolescents. The invited workshop panelists represent an array of scientific disciplines and research topics. The workshop will address TDM effects at different ages (early development, childhood, and adolescence), and outcomes (cognitive, physical and mental health), as well as the need for diversity and inclusion in TDM studies. The meeting will be open to the scientific community and the public at large.
