Dr. Gross is a longtime leader in finding solutions to the nation’s toughest education challenges.

The school serves as a national model for improving the academic performance of students from housing projects by engaging the parents. Additionally, she recently completed leading a landmark, yearlong study in the Houston Independent School District to examine how stress-reduction affects academics, attendance, and bullying in elementary school students, and a second study on stress and its effects on learning.

Most recently, she received the Good Heart Humanitarian Award from Jewish Women International and was named One of Houston’s Most Influential Women of 2016 by Houston Women’s Magazine.

EP 971B - How to Build Your Baby's Brain
Nature and nurture are in a delicate dance. Science tells us that early childhood experiences have the capacity to structure and alter the brain, meaning that the DNA your children are born with is not necessarily their "destiny."

According to Dr. Gail Gross, great parenting comes down to one mission: to be prepped and present for the windows of your child’s development so that you can take full advantage of them and help your child become a smart, successful, self-sufficient adult.

Dr. Gross joins Dr. Roizen to share insights from her book, How to Build Your Baby's Brain: A Parent's Guide to Using New Gene Science to Raise a Smart, Secure, and Successful Child.
