Birth to Three Mental Health Clinical Program: For children with adversity and toxic stress

A portion of our research focuses on the neurodevelopment of children who experienced early life adversity, such as institutional care, abuse, war or other types of trauma. Child psychologist, Maria Kroupina, Ph.D., studies questions of how we can best identify and treat these children when they are young, so they can live full lives.

All the research, advocacy and clinical efforts in Global Pediatrics are trained on the improvement of health for children living in or coming from low-resource areas of the world. We learn from our partners abroad. Here, Dr. Robert Opoka, Senior Lecturer, makes rounds at Mulago Hospital in Kampala, Uganda.
