Description

Environmental Influence on Brain Development in Children

-- Ton DeGrauw, MD, Ph.D., Professor of Pediatrics and Neurology, Emory School of Medicine

The NEAR Collaborative for Action is pleased to present the topic: Environmental Influence on Brain Development in Children.

We welcome Dr. Ton DeGrauw, Professor of Pediatrics and Neurology at Emory School of Medicine, to speak at this event. Drawing upon over 30 years of experience in Pediatrics and Neurology, Dr. DeGrauw will share the most current research on brain development: from maternal stress during pregnancy and how early experiences shape key brain circuits to the impact of disadvantaged development due to the stressors of our modern society.

You are invited to register and attend our ACEs Quarterly event to explore how certain social and psychological aspects of environment influence biology and behavior.

NEAR stands for Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACES (an acronym within an acronym – Adverse Childhood Experiences Study) and Resilience. The ACEs Quarterly events offer up continuing opportunities to explore the scientific disciplines which examine and explain how early life adversity impacts health and wellbeing.
