Coming up next in our speaker series we have Dr. Mariana Brussoni with a great talk on risky play. Mariana is an Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia, and investigator with BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute and the BC Injury Research & Prevention Unit. Mariana investigates child injury prevention, including developmental importance of children’s risky play.

Popping The Bubble Wrap: Are Children Too Safe For Their Own Good?

It used to be normal for children to spend long hours outdoors and away from watchful adults. The childhood of today looks very different. This interactive presentation will explore the effects of changing childhoods on children’s health and development, as well as strategies to restore balance.

Tickets are $10 (includes refreshments) and can be purchased via eventbrite or at the door on the evening of the event. Hope to see you there!
