Event description

Description

This year we are featuring Nicole Sherren, PhD with the Palix Foundation who will be speaking on brain development and addiction.

Lifelong health is determined by more than just our genes: modern brain science shows that experiences early in life and at other sensitive periods of development change the brain in ways that make us more or less vulnerable to addiction, mental illness, and many other chronic diseases across the lifespan. Applying the science of brain development to prevent, intervene, and treat these predictable health problems of tomorrow is a complex challenge that requires new ideas, concrete action, and large-scale collaboration.

This day will give participants the opportunity to learn about the importance of healthy brain development and its relationship to lifelong health outcomes, with a focus on mental health and addiction. Presentations, group discussion, hands on activities, and real-life examples will be used to give participants a grounding in the science of early brain development and how this knowledge can be used in policy and practice to make a difference for individuals and families.


*Registration is from 8:00am-8:30am. Conference commences at 8:30am*
