Nurture Science Program

Columbia University Medical Center is home to a unique research and treatment program based on the healing power of nurture. The Nurture Science Program has demonstrated a scientific link between family emotional connection and healthy child development and is now developing and testing therapies to help prevent and overcome emotional, behavioral, and developmental disorders — with the goal of making the benefits of nurture accessible to families across America. The Nurture Science Program is led by Director Martha G. Welch, M.D. and Co-Director Michael Myers, Ph.D. Read more on the Nurture Science Program website.
