Event Description

Remember your teenage years? Imagine living those years away from home under extreme stress as a refugee and the impact it would have on your future. Join us at OMSI when Mercy Corps Youth Director, Matt Streng, and OHSU Neuroscientist, Dr. Kristen Mackiewicz Seghete, will describe the effects of prolonged stress on the adolescent brain and how Mercy Corps is using this science to build our programming for youth refugees in Syria and beyond.
