Science & Soul Congress Proceedings

Duke's-7000 (1).jpg


Science & Soul brings together leading scientists, researchers, clinicians and educators to translate advances in our understanding of early life adversity, epigenetics and parental mental health into actionable improvements in the care of critically ill newborns, infants and families.

We now have two congresses under our belt and are looking forward to 2020 when Science & Soul will be held in Lisbon Portugal February 28-29, 2020.

I purchased access to the Science and Soul 2018 lectures. It was such a moving moment for me to see and listen to such outstanding work.... I got to see and listen to Dr Als for the second time in my 40 year nursing career. I really want to make a difference in the lives of the little souls and their families we care for, It is something I have worked for my entire career.
