Tom Boyce to give keynote address: "The Long, Good Legacy of Clyde Hertzman"

The keynote address at the 2014 Early Years Conference on January 31st will be given by Dr. Thomas Boyce. He will review Professor Clyde Hertzman’s enduring contributions to our knowledge of social disparities in health and development.

Clyde’s passion for achieving more just human societies was matched only by his curiosity for how injustice becomes enfolded into children’s developmental biology, producing a lifelong vulnerability among those from less fortunate communities. The past decade has produced a scientifi c bounty of new discoveries showing that exposures to early adversities become systematically embedded in children’s biology, even within the epigenetic structures that govern brain development.

"The Biological Embedding of Early Social Adversity: The Long, Good Legacy of Clyde Hertzman"
January 31st, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
