Luncheon Speaker 2018:
Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, a pioneering physician, who has discovered how childhood stress changes our neural systems causing lifelong health problems -- and what we can do to break the cycle. We feel so fortunate to have Dr. Burke Harris, the author of the recently launched book “The Deepest Well”, as our keynote speaker for our 4th Annual Spring Luncheon on May 15th.
Nadine Burke Harris’ healthcare practice focuses on a little-understood, yet very common factor in childhood that can profoundly impact adult-onset disease: trauma.
Please enjoy Nadine’s ground breaking Ted Talk “How Childhood Trauma Affects Health Across A Lifetime” as well as Oprah’s 60 Minutes report on the 21st century epidemic of childhood trauma.
Children of Shelters was founded on the desire to support the “unseen” in the homeless community...the children. Emotional damage from trauma is our new “unseen”. It is not only the result of trauma, it becomes the cause. It is a perpetual cycle. Hurt people hurt people.
We hope you will join us in support of breaking these cycles.
