Register today for Leap's 3rd Annual Community Conversation Starter, "The Biology of Adversity and Resilience: A two-generation perspective on risk and opportunity," featuring Dr. Sarah Enos Watamura.
Over the last two years, Leap's Community Conversation Starters have covered topics related to toxic stress, brain development and understanding how bias impacts our work with young children and families.
This year's presentation will take a deeper dive into the intersection of these topics, exploring how early life adversity, including social factors like bias and discrimination, impact early childhood brain development.
Sarah Enos Watamura, Ph.D., is associate professor of psychology and director of the Child Health & Development Laboratory at the University of Denver. She is also the co-director of the Stress, Early Experience and Development (SEED) Research Center. Dr. Watamura has been conducting research on physiologic stress in young children for nearly 15 years, and is part of the international community of scholars who focus their research efforts on explicating the contributing and buffering factors associated with early life stress as well as its consequences.
