Professor Julie Meeks-Gardner

May 1, 1961-

Medical Researcher who has done pioneering work in the early childhood development field. While her earlier research was primarily in children’s nutrition, development and behaviour in developing countries, she has spent over 15 years focusing on the development of aggression and violence in children and the effects of violence on children.


Professor Gardner has done several studies in this area, including research on primary school factors related to violence, the degree of exposure to violence among secondary school children, and a comprehensive study on violence against children across 17 Caribbean countries for the UN Secretary General’s report published in 2005.
