New Journal Club for Parents of Infants & Toddlers

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Duffield Hall, 345

It can be confusing and frustrating to sift through the parenting guidance/advice/noise coming from friends, family, social media, and the news to make the best possible evidence-based parenting decisions.

To support each other in this process and create a community of fellow parents, a pilot Journal Club for Parents of Infants & Toddlers in collaboration with Work/Life in Human Resources is being organized by Andrea Ippolito, Lecturer, Civil & Environmental Engineering. The format will be similar to academic journal clubs where participants read a paper or two about a specific topic and then meet to discuss it. In this case, we do not expect experts in these disciplines to attend – through our discussion and sharing of knowledge, ideas, and experiences, we will work to make sense of these articles together!

Our first session will take place on August 14th at 12:00 pm in Duffield Hall, Room 354 (brown bag lunch). Prior to the session, you will be sent 1-2 papers to answer the following question: What does research show about introducing allergens, such as peanut butter and eggs, to infants and toddlers?

This is open to faculty and staff parents across the Cornell community. No research or experience with journal clubs is required!

Note: If this pilot is successful, there is a possible expansion to topics including parenting preschoolers, school-agers, adolescents, etc. If you would like to be notified of any expansion into these age groups, please contact  Andrea Ippolito,
