Next week, on July 31, 2019, at 1 p.m. ET, the NIMH Office for Disparities Research and Workforce Diversity (ODWD) is hosting the first webinar in its 2019 series. Dr. Deanna Barch, of the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, will present “Let’s Play Ball: How Sex and Gender Effects Influence Sports Involvement, Hippocampal Volume, and Depressive Symptoms in Children.”
Join us for this presentation on how the relationships between sports involvement, exercise, and mental health vary as males and females move through different developmental periods associated with variations in both biology (pubertal hormones), social relationships, and societal pressures.
