2 in 5 children in Hawaiʻi have been exposed to traumatic experiences.
This childhood trauma can have lifelong consequences.
Our students and employees are already facing these today.
Join us to learn about how toxic stress is affecting Hawaiʻi’s workforce and communities — and, as community leaders, how we can prevent this from happening in the first place. Breakfast is included. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
Featuring Sarah Enos Watamura, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology, Director of the Child Health & Development Laboratory, and Co-Director of the Stress, Early Experience and Development (SEED) Research Center at University of Denver. Read more about Dr. Watamura.
