Children and Toxic Stress: A Public Health Response for Philadelphia’s Children and Families

CCTC’s first ever panel discussion with WHYY on March 20th was a huge success! With over 300 guests in attendance, distinguished panelists gathered to discuss the effects of toxic stress on the developing brain, and to call for a public health response to the trauma that is affecting Philadelphia’s children and families.
