Introducing our Guest Legacy Leader your host Erin Smith:

I am best described as an academic by nature and a child at heart. My desire to learn what the developing baby is experiencing in the womb started when I was three years old. But it wasn’t till 2014 that my curiosity became my purpose. Since then I have been on a mission to get the discoveries in the field of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease out to the public in a way that is empowering for all families across the globe so they can pass down health as a family legacy.

I have worked with the Colorado Department of Public Health as a member of their Preconception Health Advisory Board and Community Research Committee. I am a member of the International Society of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease, a committee member of the US Society of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease. In  2015 was honored to be invited by the World Health Organization to help rank focus areas for future research on preventing obesity and metabolic syndrome in children and adolescents.
