On the Shoulders of Giants Scientific Symposium

October 20, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm MDT

Why are fewer girls diagnosed with autism?

Boys are more likely to be diagnosed with disorders such as autism spectrum disorder or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). But girls are more likely to develop mental health disorders like depression and anxiety that have onset in adolescence.

Take a deep dive into the origins of these disparities with the leading neuroscientist of sex differences and brain development as your guide. Join us at the Child Mind Institute’s 2022 On the Shoulders of Giants Scientific Symposium honoring Margaret McCarthy, PhD, and her proteges. Adriana Di Martino, MD, internationally recognized autism researcher and research director of the Child Mind Institute’s Autism Center, will also join a roundtable discussion after the presentations.
