PTSD and Accelerated Aging

$3.00 | CE Hours:1.00 | Intermediate

 

CE Course Description

Investigators have suggested that aspects of the intra-individual environment, such as psychiatric symptoms, may impact physiology directly and be as important as the external environment, if not more so, in predicting subsequent health outcomes.  This CE course explores the growing empirical literature concerning PTSD-related accelerated aging and the methodologies used to study it.
