    • April 15th, 2020 at 6:30 pm

Description: In Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER, we follow pediatrician and filmmaker, Dr. Delaney Ruston, as she finds herself at a loss on how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional wellbeing. She sets out to understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society, and how we, as parents and educators, can empower teens to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience.
