DNA Is Not Destiny – Breaking Down Biological Obstacles to Success

April 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Epigenetics and the Brain Science of Trauma
As a follow-up to our  February and March events, we will be screening DNA is Not Destiny, one of the films from the Raising of America series produced by California Newsreel. This film will build upon and reinforce concepts raised at TCC’s March event, highlighting the fact that everything in a child’s environment including diet, environmental toxins, safety, housing, and parental stress can impact long-term chances for success in life.
As we prepare for the Marland primary elections, this film highlights several issues you can review with candidates.
If you haven’t had a chance to see this film, save the date and join us for the screening and discussion.  Our discussion will be led by Dr. Michele Solloway. Dr. Solloway has worked as a health services researcher for over 20 years, focusing on children’s health, vulnerable populations, health reform, federal and state health policy, health professions training and education, and most recently integrative medicine and trauma-informed care. Dr. Solloway has conducted research, program implementation and program evaluations in academic, government, social services and not-for-profit settings. She has also consulted widely for a number of state, philanthropic, and community organizations. Dr. Solloway received her PhD from UC Berkeley, Department of City and Regional Planning, her Masters of Public Administration from San Francisco State University and her Bachelor degree in Neurobiology from UC Berkeley.
