Toddler Rules for a Happier and Healthier Life

hasan merali event image

Dr. Hasan Merali’s experiences as a pediatric emergency medicine physician, researcher, and parent have led him to the conclusion that toddlers are some of the best people in our society. These youngsters’ ability to take risks, ask questions, and solve problems can (and should!) be incorporated into adults’ behavior to improve our personal and professional lives. Join us for a discussion on Dr. Merali’s research on the benefits of learning from children and the powerful impact of intergenerational learning. 

This event is virtual.
