Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, MD is a professor of medicine in the UCLA Division of Cardiology, visiting professor in the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University, and president of the International Society for Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health. On top of this, she's the coauthor, along with Kathryn Bowers, of best-selling book Zoobiquity and their latest, Wildhood: The Epic Journey from Adolescence to Adulthood in Humans and Other Animals. It explores an incredible perspective on their discovery about adolescence across the animal kingdom - outlining four key life skills that all adolescents, including both humans and animals, experience - and the story of how she got to this research is just as interesting as the research itself.
