Dr Brian Fidlin, Psy.D - ‘Adolescent Brain Development’

His presentation will include straight-forward discussion of adolescent brain development and the impact this has on decision making, emotions & risk taking.

Dr. Scott Bautch, D.C., DACBOH, CCST, CCSP - 'Slowing Down the Hamster Wheel'

In this fast-paced, hectic world where we all feel like hamsters running on a wheel, it is easy to get caught up in the doing of “things” and not take care of ourselves. However, taking care of ourselves is essential to our well-being. We cannot give to others what we do not have within ourselves. Discover ways to overcome barriers & discover your inner purpose. Love being you.
