Dr. Dennis Embry: Raising Healthy Kids
Join us for a (free!) evening presentation by Dr. Embry, a nationally acclaimed child psychologist whose work has taken him from Sesame Street to the Secretary of Defense with stops in between. Dr. Embry will outline how our society’s current policies and practices are harmful to our youth, and how each of us can use just four simple, scientifically proven strategies to better the futures of all children. Anyone who is responsible for the health and well being of children and adolescents can benefit from this presentation including parents, teachers, social workers, guidance councilors, coaches, nurses, law enforcement, policy makers to name a few.
