Nadine Burke Harris, M.D., Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity

Dr. Nadine Burke Harris is a pioneering physician who delivers targeted care to vulnerable children. Her groundbreaking research shows how childhood adversity such as abuse, neglect and even divorce can change our biological systems – from stress responses and growth rates to diabetes, heart disease and more – and that these changes can last a lifetime.
