The department of Environmental and Occupational Health at Dornsife presents Heather H. Burris, MD, MPH, CHOP Newborn Care Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
She directs a birth cohort based in Boston where she and her colleagues have recruited over 950 pregnant women to study psychosocial stress, resilience and epigenetic biomarkers in mothers and infants.
