The Cleveland Medical Library Association's 2013 annual lecture will feature Lenore Cagen Terr, MD,Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, University of California San Francisco School of Medicine. Dr. Terr, a San Francisco private practitioner of Psychiatry/Consultant, and Clinical Professor at UCSF, is a distinguished leader in the field of childhood trauma. From Chowchilla, California, where 26 school children were kidnapped and buried alive, to Concord, New Hampshire,where hundreds of TV-watching schoolchildren saw their teacher's space vehicle explode, she has directly observed and then followed how young people manage and survive extreme events. Named a "hero of medicine in America's war on violence" by the then U.S Secretary of Health and Human Services, Lenore Terr has won virtually every award for scientific study or clinical work in child and adolescent psychiatry, including one from the American Psychological Association.
A Clevelander from the time she was 11 months old, Lenore graduated magna cum laude as a music major (piano) from CWRU. She then attended the University of Michigan Medical School and did all of her postgraduate training there. She and husband, Abba I Terr, MD, a Cleveland native, returned to teach at CWRU School of Medicine for 5 years. Since moving to San Francisco,she has visited Cleveland often to present her new work.
The CMLA Trustees hope that you can join us on Friday, April 5, to welcome Lenore Terr back to Cleveland and learn about her important work in the realm of post-traumatic stress among children and young people. The lecture begins at 6:00 P.M. in the Ford Auditorium, to be followed by a reception in the Powell Room of the Allen Memorial Medical Library.
