Save the Date – May 22, 2017
This year’s speaker is going to be Dr. Sarah Enos Watamura, who will be speaking at the OSU Parenting Education Conference earlier in the day, and then will be coming to speak to local parents that evening. Dr. Watamura is a developmental psychobiologist whose research interests center on the consequences of stress experienced in early childhood. She will be speaking to us about family stress and buffering processes in families with young children, and the costs of stress exposure on health, development and achievement.
We hope that you will put us on your calendar and plan to attend.
