Pritzker Lecture Series on Integrative
Pediatric and Adolescent Health

Adolescence is a period of increased vulnerability for a wide range of behavioral and emotional health problems, including accidents, depression, risk-taking and reckless behaviors, alcohol and substance use, eating disorders, sexually transmitted diseases, suicide and homicide. These vulnerabilities emerge at the interface of biological, behavioral and social changes during this period of maturation. There is a compelling need to deepen our understanding of how and why adolescence creates these vulnerabilities in ways that can inform early intervention and prevention efforts.

These videos are part of the Pritzker Lecture Series on Integrative Pediatric and Adolescent Health, funded by the Pritzker Family Fund:
