JOINING FORCES: Social Determinants of Health – How Childhood Adversity and Toxic Stress Exposure Affect Lifelong Health

Advances in neuroscience, molecular biology, genomics, developmental psychology, epidemiology, and sociology have aided the medical field in understanding how childhood adversity and toxic stress exposure, such as intimate partner violence and child maltreatment, affect lifelong health.  We will discuss this new paradigm shift of how health care views many adult diseases – in the context of an ecobiodevelopmental framework.

This workshop is being presented by Kathy Franchek-Roa on Monday, November 12 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm at the Joining Forces Conference.

Dr. Kathy Franchek-Roa is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University Of Utah School Of Medicine.  She currently teaches residents and medical students about pediatric medicine.  She is a Preceptor in the Teen Mother and Child Program at the South Main Health Department Clinic and at the University Pediatric Clinic at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah.
