This weekend I attended an amazing Pediatric Neurology seminar. I learned applicable things for my practice and for my life. We discussed the importance of social connections on the human brain (adult and pediatric), and the importance of right brain activities (creativity, fun, play) on brain and nervous system development and health. We discussed some alarming statistics (kids ages 13-18 spend almost 9 hours a day on entertainment “media”, over 1million kids under the age of 5 are on psychiatric drugs, etc) and talked about how all of this needs to change. It was a great seminar and I am truly excited to help my patients, friends and my family love better, feel better and become more connected and alive!
We also had a lot of fun with a good friend and their wonderful family. I am grateful!
