              The Pediatrics Club is excited to be hosting guest speaker, Dr. Glenn Schiraldi. Dr. Schiraldi is a U.S. Army veteran who has authored several books on topics related to PTSD, resilience, and self-esteem. He has served in advisory roles for the Pentagon, the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, and the University of Maryland. Dr. Schiraldi will be discussing how adverse childhood experiences lead to health complications later in life. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) affect the majority of Americans, and independently predict a wide range of deleterious health outcomes in adults, ranging from anxiety, depression, and PTSD, to autoimmune disorders, sleep problems, heart disease, drug abuse, and functional impairment. Mark your calendars for Monday, Oct. 28, in Room 1207 at 9:30 a.m.
