Our upcoming speaker, Dr. Karen Wilson, will present the topic "Pandemic Brain: Are We Experiencing and Evolutionary Shift" virtually on December 9 at 4 PM (PST).
In this session, Dr. Wilson will review the social and emotional factors that influence academic performance and cognitive development. She will also discuss social expectations in the context of neurodevelopment and explain the importance of parental and societal support during critical periods of development.
