The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope
Wednesday November 22nd, 5:30-7:00 at Bear Tooth Theatrepub
1230 W 27th Ave, Anchorage, AK 99503
After the sold out showing on November 6th, join us for an encore presentation of Resilience!
Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back.
There will be a panel discussion after the film presented by Providence Health & Services Alaska.
Tickets on sale Tuesday, November 14th online and at the Bear Tooth box office!
