STAR Spotlight Series: Evidence for Complimentary and Integrative Treatments for ASD

Please join us for our next community talk featuring STAR co-director Robert Hendren, DO.

Dr. Hendren completeed his residency in general psychiatry at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine, and his child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at the Yale Child Study Center. He is board certified in General as well as Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

Institute (Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders).

His current areas of research and publication interests are translational interventional research including clinical pharmacology, nutraceutical and nutritional trials using biomarkers (MRI, measures of inflammation, oxidative stress, immune function and pharmacogenomics) to enhance resilience in neurodevelopmental disorders. He is currently applying this targeted outcomes research focus in a collaborative project with the Oak Hill School for youth with severe autism and neurodevelopmental spectrum disorders in San Anselmo, CA.
