Event description

Description

Stress is pervasive in today’s society, leading to a variety of mental and physical health problems across the lifespan. Stress-related health issues, including anxiety disorders, depression and other physical health problems, are estimated to affect over 40 million people every year in the United States alone, with the economic burden (in terms of health care costs, lost wages, etc) estimated to be over $45 billion and climbing. Many millions of Americans continue to suffer from the negative impact of stress on mental and physical health, due in large part to gaps in our understanding of the causes of these stress-related health issues and to the high cost and low accessibility of evidence-based treatments.

This day-long research conference will focus on recent research innovations and future directions in the fields of stress and trauma as they relate to both psychological dysfunction and to health and well-being. The event will feature presentations and panel discussions from leading scientists in the field of stress and trauma research, including Bruce McEwen (Rockefeller University), Elissa Epel (UCSF), Rachel Yehuda (Mt. Siani School of Medicine) and JoAnn Difede (Weill Cornell Medical School). The event will also feature poster presentations from Hunter College undergraduate and graduate students. Light refreshments and lunch will be served.

Seating is limited, so please register using the link.
