Comer @ Media ~ School Development Program

The transformative implications of child-centric and systemic-holistic health are enormous. That's why it's worth your time to join in this coming Wednesday December 2nd, 2009, from 11a to 12noon in the Roth Room (e15-283A), when the MIT Media Lab's Social Health Initiative hosts nationally and internationally renowned Yale University School of Medicine Professor of Child Psychiatry Dr James Comer for his talk...
Dr Comer is perhaps best known for his creation in 1968 of the Comer School Development Program (SDP), the forerunner of most modern school reform efforts. He is the author of nine books, including Maggie’s American Dream, and Leave No Child Behind, and has served on multiple boards, advisory committees, and more.
"The MIT Media Laboratory is launching a Social Health Initiative, and a series of inaugural keynote lectures. Our goal is to create a network of organizations and tools that help people thrive, staying healthy and happy during their entire lives. Because social health is intimately intertwined with social support, adequate wealth, self-determination, and security, a successful social health system must take a holistic view of life."
This Social Health Initiative is worthy of your close attention.
