Nadine Burke Harris

A pioneer in the field of medicine, pediatrician Dr. Nadine Burke Harris is a leader in the movement to
transform how we respond to early childhood adversity and the resulting toxic stress that dramatically
impacts our health and longevity. By exploring the science behind childhood adversity, she offers a new
way to understand the adverse events that affect all of us throughout our lifetimes. As the founder/CEO
of the Center for Youth Wellness, she has brought these scientific discoveries and her new approach to
audiences at the Mayo Clinic, American Academy of Pediatrics, Google Zeitgeist and Dreamforce.
Nadine’s TED Talk, “How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime,” has been viewed more than
3 million times. 

Her work has been profiled in the New Yorker, in Paul Tough’s best-selling book, How
Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character, and in Jamie Redford’s feature
film, “Resilience.” She is currently working on a book on the issue of Childhood Adversity and Health called the Deepest Well.
