Featured Mini Plenary: Putting the Spotlight on Children’s Health: A Conversation with Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, Surgeon General of California


Not long after being sworn in as Governor, Gavin Newsom appointed Dr. Nadine Burke Harris to be the first Surgeon General of California. Years earlier, Dr. Harris delivered a TED Talk on the lifelong effects of childhood trauma that has been viewed more than 6 million times, and her early work as Surgeon General has focused on adverse childhood experiences, toxic stress and their impact on children well into adulthood. In this engaging featured session, Dr. Harris will share her vision for improving Californians’ health and well-being.
