How do trauma, poverty, and racial discrimination influence our health? What about our evolutionary history causes our bodies to respond in this way? Biological anthropologist Zaneta Thayer explores the biological mechanisms through which early life stress influences biology and health later on.

The SciCafe series is proudly sponsored by Judy and Josh Weston.

This SciCafe event is presented in collaboration with The Leakey Foundation.
