Announcing a new Discussion Group: Early Stressors on Brain Development.  A discussion group format will allow presentations/overviews on subject matter that isn’t necessarily tied to a single article.  Potential topics include

  • socioeconomic status
  • stress
  • nutrition
  • depression
  • early institutional/foster care

The group will meet on the third Thursday of each month, 4-5p, and meetings will alternate between the Danforth and Medical Campuses.  Stay tuned as a web page is created for this discussion group.  In the meantime, contact Anneliese Schaefer if you’d like to be added to a distribution list.
