Nature vs. Nurture? It's both – meet #epigenetics.

It’s long been thought that the genes we are born with predetermine our characteristics, such as the colour of our hair, or even our personalities. Scientists are now exploring the idea that our environments and early life experiences can potentially change how our genes are expressed, and literally get under the skin to affect our health, well-being and behavior across the lifespan.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and on our blog all this week to learn more about epigenetics research at HELP!

Upcoming opportunities to learn more about epigenetics:

-          2014 Early Years Pre-Conference (Jan 30)

-          2014 HELP Webinar Series (Feb 9, Feb 18, & Mar 6).
