Event description

Description

This event is SOLD OUT; register to be added to the waitlist.

Interested parties without a ticket can wait to see if space becomes available in the Emory Clark Hall,
Lobby. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. (for those with a ticket). If space is available, entry will be allowed five minutes prior to the start of the panel discussion.

Trauma-induced stress causes a range of physical and mental illnesses that contribute to family breakdown, school failure, and crime. Children, whose brains are still developing, are particularly at risk. Yet science also shows that appropriate interventions may help reverse the effects of toxic stress.

The panel will discuss how Milwaukee is addressing its epidemic of trauma from individual therapies to efforts to strengthen the broader community. Please join us and contribute to this important discussion.

Panelists:

Bevan Baker, Commissioner of Health, City of Milwaukee Health Department

Pete Carlson, President, Aurora Behavioral Health Services

Franklin Cumberbatch, Vice President, Bader Philanthropies

Professor Robert Fox, Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology, Marquette University

Professor Paul Gasser, Department of Biomedical Sciences, Marquette University

Kent Lovern, Chief Deputy District Attorney, Milwaukee County
