San Francisco Chronicle

Google’s philanthropic arm will give $3 million to pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris’ Bayview clinic, which has earned international acclaim for its work linking the physical ailments of low-income children to their traumatic experiences. The three-year grant is a boon for Burke Harris’ Center for Youth Wellness, which has a $5 million annual budget. The facility focuses on what is known as adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress — issues like neglect, abuse, exposure to violence and household dysfunction that can damage a child’s developing brain and body.
