Event Details

Science Café 360 is a casual space for open dialogue between community members, medical researchers, and social scientists. Researchers demystify what they do, how they do it, and why they think it will help local residents. Community members - anyone from the casually interested to health activists, from citizen patients to street scholars - will probe, debate, and share ideas that come from living the experience. 

 

Please join the Clinical Translational Science Institute-Children’s National (CTSI-CN) for Science Café 360, From Placenta to Preschool: The Developing Brain and What Communities Can Do to Support It, on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 from 6pm – 8pm at Busboys and Poets (Brookland Location). The featured speakers are: Dr. Anna Penn, a neonatologist and developmental neuroscientist at Children’s National Health System; Dr. Lee Beers, a pediatrician and director of the DC Mental Health Access in Pediatrics (DC MAP) program and Early Childhood Innovation Network (ECIN); and, Gail Avent, Executive Director and founder of Total Family Care Coalition (TFCC), a family-run not-for-profit organization that helps families that have emotional, behavioral, and mental health difficulties. Dr. Penn will discuss her research in neuroplacentology and how placental function shapes the developing brain. Dr. Beers will provide information on the Early Childhood Innovation Network, with a specific focus on her research on early childhood mental health and toxic stress. Ms. Avent will discuss the work of her grassroots peer-to-peer family and youth support program that she founded after experiencing stumbling blocks in accessing mental health services for her son.
