November 17, 2017

Ludwig Professor of Child Psychiatry and director of the early emotional development program at Washington University School of Medicine, said in an interview with Infectious Diseases in Children. “They should assess how much adversity the adolescent is still experiencing and address these ongoing stressors as health risks in the same way they might address diet or exercise.”
