Panel description: Where people grow up – the safety of the neighborhood, access to good food and health care, and the role models around them – shape their childhood and their future health. But how much? This panel will take on that question, from research to mapping. One researcher discusses his work mapping minute-to-minute gun violence and how it is reshaping the boundaries of neighborhood influence on health, while a pediatrician shares his perspective on grappling with food insecurity and traumatic stress in the second-hungriest congressional district in the country.
