Chicago Council On Global Affairs Launches New Website With Focus On Maternal, Child Nutrition

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs launched a new website this week — — which “will feature [Senior Fellow on Global Agriculture and Food Policy] Roger Thurow’s 1,000 Days Project — telling the story of the vital importance of good nutrition and health from the beginning of a woman’s pregnancy to her child’s second birthday,” according to an email alert from the council. The alert notes the site “will host videos and photos as well as key infographics, reports, and commentaries” (8/8). In his inaugural post, “Making the invisible visible,” Thurow examines the issues of maternal and child nutrition, writing, “In short order, stunting and nutrition marched to the top of the political agenda this summer” (8/6).
