We invite you to join to discuss one of the most prevalent issues that families, caretakers, educators, and pediatric healthcare providers face on a daily basis: screen time! We'll be joined by our friends at LiveMore ScreenLess to talk about how screens affect the development of the young child's brain, experts' screen time recommendations for young children, and how we can provide practical, realistic, and helpful guidance for families.

The webinar is free, accessible to the public, and will be recorded and shared for future viewing. Just register in advance to get your link to join.
