Video Abstracts & Presentations

Video abstracts share key results from scientific publications in brief videos (usually 2 to 5 minutes long) to share peer-reviewed publication findings in an engaging manner. Presentations include short lightning talks from conferences, and longer presentations sharing key findings from the All Our Families cohort study. You may visit the News & Media webpage to watch additional video abstracts and presentations from AOF team members.

For example, this video abstract shares AOF research findings related to longitudinal associations between screen use and reading in preschool aged children, available on the Pediatrics Journal website (Dr. Brae Anne McArthur, 2021).
