Event description
3rd Annual SMART Symposium: Resiliency as Transformational

About this Event

The three-day Annual SMART Symposium is an interdisciplinary, multi-sector, professional development training opportunity where SMART’s medical and behavioral health providers and educational leaders from across the country come together in Washington, D.C. to share best practices and create further innovation on the Model’s capacity to effect positive change in urban and rural school districts from grades PK–12 and in post-secondary arenas for vulnerable populations.

The SMART Symposium is hosted by Ginn Group Consulting and sponsored by CVS Health and Aramark. The three-day event will culminate with the SMART Congressional and Industry Leaders' Breakfast Panel on Capitol Hill, co-hosted by Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell, representing Alabama’s 7th Congressional District, the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, and Ginn Group Consulting.

The keynote speaker for this year’s SMART Symposium is Allyson Mackey, Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. She holds a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.S. in Biological Sciences from Stanford University.

Her research focuses on brain plasticity, learning, and structural and functional neuroimaging with the goal of promoting positive educational and health outcomes for all individuals, regardless of socioeconomic background. She will be presenting on the correlations between curiosity and brain plasticity and the conditions that allow growth mindset and resiliency to flourish.
