Join us for movie and pizza! Participants will view the movie Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope. Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. This film reveals how toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time and early death. Resilience will discuss how pediatricians, educators and community agencies are using cutting-edge science to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress.
