Coming of Age on Planet Earth: The Nature of Adolescence in Humans and Other Animals

Tuesday, June 30th at 11am ET

Join us for a conversation with B. N. Horowitz, MD, Professor of Medicine in the UCLA Division of Cardiology and Co-Director of the Evolutionary Medicine Program at UCLA. Newly dispersing mammals, fledging birds and other animal adolescents suffer from high rates of predation, frequent social subordination, and some sexual exploitation. The diversity of evolved adaptive strategies used by other species to reduce risk can be a source of insights for better understanding high rates of accidental death, anxiety/affective disorders, and sexual victimization in human adolescents and young adults. Attendees are encouraged to read an excerpt from Horowitz’s book, Wildhood, which will be shared upon registration. Sign up here for the meeting link.
