Autism - What do Diet and Environment Have to do With It?
Plymouth Congregational Church
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:


Conditions affecting children's behavior and brain development, like autism and ADHD, are exploding in prevalence. The CDC estimates autism now is diagnosed in 1-in-88 children, a more than 70 percent increase over just six years. These increases leave many parents, and clinicians, with questions about what's causing autism and how we can work to prevent it. Autism is a complex condition, with an important genetic component. However, growing evidence suggests environmental and dietary factors play a significant role in increasing the risk for autism and in effective clinical interventions. Dr. Herbert will present what we know about autism and how we can apply public health strategies to address the autism epidemic through appropriate treatment and prevention.

About Dr. Herbert: Dr. Martha Herbert is the author, with Karen Weintraub, of The Autism Revolution: Whole Body Strategies for Making Life All it Can Be, which  was peer-reviewed by Harvard Medical School Faculty and published by Harvard Health Publications/Random House. Dr. Herbert is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, a Pediatric Neurologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and an affiliate of the Harvard-MIT-MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, where she is director of the TRANSCEND Research Program (Treatment Research and Neuroscience Evaluation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders).
