at the Fredric G. Levin College of Law at the University of Florida
Join renowned neurodevelopmental psychologist Daniel Goldowitz, Ph.D., from Vancouver, B.C., for a discussion of current, cutting-edge research on toxic stress and its effect on the developing brains of young children.
This event is by invitation only (space limited) and will include local professionals who work with children and families, along with UF academics who develop and teach curricula that affect families. Joining forces and resources, we will begin a conversation about how to transform contemporary research into practices that help all children reach their fullest potential.
