Childhood Trauma is Tied to Health Risks, but Michigan Doctors Don't Ask [bridgemi.com]

By Ted Roelofs, Bridge, December 13, 2019 By now, the medical evidence is clear: Childhood trauma can have profound effects on physical and mental health.

Dr. Cathy Anthofer-Fialon ·

We laughed as we burned marshmallows, and sometimes my mom even brought her guitar to play for us. This is all, thankfully, I knew of camping until I became an adult living...
