Brandman in the Community

Irvine campus hosting ‘The Raising of America’ screening, discussion

October 14, 2015 by Cindy O'Dell

RaisingAmericaA coalition of Orange County organizations serving children and families will host a community conversation from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4, at Brandman University’s Irvine campus. Brandman faculty member Dr. Faith Polk is on the steering committee organizing the event.

Participants will see excerpts of the documentary series “The Raising of America: Early Childhood and the Future of Our Nation,” hear from a panel of local experts and discuss related issues in breakout sessions. They can also use #RaisingOC on Twitter and Facebook to further share their views.

The entire series, which looks at early child health and development, will air at a later date on PBS SoCal. The series will explore a number of questions including “What does science tell us about the enduring importance of early life experiences on the brain and body? What it is like to be a parent today? What policies and structures help or hinder the raising of healthy, happy and compassionate children?”

The event is free, but registration is required to reserve a seat. Additional information is available at the Orange County Department of Education Newsroom.
